Unified Korea Lose Table Tennis Championship Quarter Final

May 4, 2018

The unified North and South Korea women’s table tennis team has lost to Japan 3-0 in their World Team Championships semi-final in Sweden.

The countries, who were due to face each other in Thursday’s quarter-finals, decided instead to form a unified team for the last-four match.

The move came just days after leaders of the two nations held successful peace talks.

The last time a unified Korea team played at the tournament was in 1991.

The decision to form a unified team was a tripartite agreement between the two countries and the International Table Tennis Federation.
