He lacks the toned physique of an Olympian but 'dear respected' leader Kim Jong-Un will be the inspiration when North Korea's athletes go for gold at the London Olympics. North Korea are aiming for a record number of medals in London in what would be a timely boost for Kim, the new face of the country's ruling dynasty and its all-pervasive personality cult.
