#TheRealDeal, VICTOR, Lee/Yoo
Only less than 100 days till the Olympic Games. Will Lee/Yoo be #TheRealDeal?
 
Yoo has achieved a three-peat at this event, winning with Lee in 2015 and with Shin Baek Choel in 2014. This is the fourth Asian crown for both. Yoo became an Asian Champion for the first time in 2010 with Cho Gun Woo. Lee’s previous two titles were with his former no.1 partners Ko Sung Hyun and Jung Jae Sung.
