Imprinted with the five Olympic rings and the year 1988, the plastic bottle brings us back to Hanseong (Seoul), Korea 32 years ago.
A lot has happened during that Olympic Game...
North Korean Agent bombing Korean Air Flight 858, killing all 115 people on board attempted to sabotage the Olympics;
Under the eyes of international audiences, South Korea held the Olympics creating a clean direct election for the president of that time;
the Hanseoung Olympics opened on 17 Sep 1988. It was the second time that an Olympics was held in Asia. Noted that the first time was in Japan.
After eight years, two terms of Olympic boycotting, the US and the Soviet Union stood on the same stage for the first and final time; The picture shows that USSR(red) defeated US(white) in a basketball match, so USSR obtained a gold medal in this section.
Today, Hanseoung was renamed as Seoul and Soviet Union has ceased to exist. On the other hand, plastic bottles lying on beaches have yet to be decomposed and may even outlive the Olympic Game that has a long history. This 1988 Seoul Olympic special edition Coca-Cola PET bottle is estimated to stay in nature for around 400 years in order to be decomposed naturally.
