S. Korea forms joint women’s table tennis team with N. Korea for first time in 27 years


Seoul and Pyongyang formed a joint women’s
team for the first time in 27 years at the 2018 World Team Table Tennis Championships…
currently taking place in Sweden. There was originally a quarterfinals match
planned on Thursday between the two Korean teams,… but as they agreed to compete as
one, they advanced to the semis together. The last joint team in table tennis was formed
in 1991 during the Championships in Japan. Thomas Weikert, the president of the International
Table Tennis Federation, led the move. South Korea’s national table tennis federation
also plans to form a joint team with the North at this year’s Asian Games… and has finalized
its proposal to the international table tennis authorities.
