The South Korean Women’s National Under-17 Handball Team has reached the final of the Asian Championship.
The team, coached by Lee Doo-kyu (Ilshin Girls’ High School), cruised to a 42-22 semifinal victory over Chinese Taipei on day six of the 10th Asian Women’s Youth Handball Championship in New Delhi, India, on Sunday.
Korea will face Japan in the final on Thursday. Japan went on to defeat China 34-22 in the other quarterfinal.
Korea won the game against Taiwan by 20 goals, with Shin Chae-hyun (Hwangji Jeong San High School) scoring 10 goals and Kim Ji-sun (Ilshin Girls’ High School) scoring eight goals.
Korea, which has already qualified for the 2024 World Women’s Youth Championship, which is awarded to the top four finishers in the tournament, will look to regain its dominance in the tournament for the first time in four years since 2019.
Korea has won eight of the previous nine editions of the Asian Women’s Youth Championship, which was founded in 2005.
It missed the last edition in 2022 due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). 먹튀검증
