A joint Korean table tennis team wins the final in mixed doubles at the Korea Open

A table tennis mixed doubles pairing with Jang Woo-jin from South Korea and Cha Hyo Sim from North Korea beat a Chinese team 3-1 at the International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) World Tour Platinum Korea Open at the Chungmu Sports Arena in Daejeon.

It has been 27 years since a joint Korean team previously won a gold medal at an international competition. A unified women’s team won the gold medal at the world table tennis championships in 1991 in Chiba, Japan.

Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon participated in the awards ceremony as an awards presenter and heartily celebrated their victory.

Meanwhile, a joint Korean table tennis team with Lee Sang-su from the South and Pak Sin Hyok from the North won bronze in the men’s doubles, showing the power of the unified Korean team.
