Unified Korean canoeing team wins historic bronze in women’s 200m dragon boat racing


Let’s now take things over to Jakarta and
Palembang — where the 2018 Asian Games are in full swing. Korean athletes grabbed one more medal today,…
but this one, all the more special… as it was the first time EVER… for a unified Korean
team to stand on the podium at an international multi-sports event. The joint women’s canoeing team,… comprised
of seven South Koreans and five North Koreans,… won a historic bronze in the 200 meter dragon
boat racing event. China claimed the gold and the host nation
Indonesia grabbed the silver. Regarding the medal standings, the bronze
medal won’t be counted for either South or North Korea,… rather it’s considered a separate
medal for “Korea.”
