The unified Korean women’s basketball team grabbed the silver medal in the final game, a 71-65 loss against China at the Gelora Bung Karno Main Stadium in Jakarta on September 1.

This was the fourth medal by “COR” after three medals from the dragon boat racing in canoeing. The team had only been able to train together for just one month, but the South and North Korean athletes became one, threw a shot for peace, and achieved this tremendous result.

The 2018 Asian Games will close at the Gelora Bung Karno Main Stadium in Jakarta at 9 p.m. (KST) on September 2. South and North Korea will march together under one flag carried by two table tennis players, Shu Hyo-won from the South and Choe Il from the North, during the closing ceremony.
