    The 33-year-old Oh was a member of South Korea’s gold medal winning 5000-meter relay team at the 2006 Torino Olympics.

    Oh’s motorcycle crashed into a car making a u-turn in the Korean capital city, Yonshap News Agency reported on Tuesday.

    Oh and his teammates overtook Canada on the final lap to claim victory in Torino. The Korean skater also competed in the 5000-meter relay at the 2002 Salt Lake City Games.

    He was a seven-time world championship medalist, including two gold medals coming in 2003 and 2006.

    The two-time Korean Olympian retired later in 2006 following the team’s gold medal performance.
