Here from the perspective of another NYT photographer, himself a native of
South Korea:

This I believe is the most pertinent part:

"To successfully photograph the Olympics, he said, you have to plan,
prepare and ?want it more than anyone else and never give up,? two traits
he knows well from his personal journey.

Planning and patience may be the foundation, but once the event begins,
instinct takes over. There is a purely meditative aspect to being a great
sports photographer and a feeling of being solely in the moment.
Anticipation is critical for capturing the moments that happen so fast.

?It?s really being able to see what?s going to happen before it happens,?
Mr. Lee said. ?If you wait until you see it with your own eyes, many times
it?s too late.?
