South and North to form joint teams at table tennis Korea Open


Cooperation between the two Koreas continues,
meanwhile, in table tennis. When the international Korea Open kicks off
this week in the South Korean city of Daejeon, players from both sides will be playing on
the same teams. The Korea Table Tennis Association said Sunday
that they’ll compete together in the doubles and mixed doubles events. For the men’s doubles, South Korea’s Lee Sang-su
will pair up with the North’s Pak Sin-hyok ,… and in the women’s doubles, it’ll be
Seo Hyo-won and Kim Song-i . For mixed doubles, South Korea’s Jang Woo-jin
and Cha Hyo-sim will play together,… as will Yoo Eun-chong and Pak Sin-hyok. This will be the third time since 1991 that
the two sides have formed joint teams at the Korea Open.
