Korea table tennis teams win bronze
Both the Korea men’s and women’s table tennis teams claimed bronze at the 2012 World Team Table Tennis Championships in Dortmund, Germany, on Saturday after losing to China and Singapore.
The men’s team, comprised of Oh Sang-eun, Ryu Seung-min and Kim Min-seok, lost to top-ranked China 3-0 in the semifinals. Earlier Saturday, the women’s team, comprised of Kim Kyung-ah, Seok Ha-jung and Dang Ye-seo, was defeated by Singapore 3-2.
Since there’s no bronze medal match in the tournament, the men’s team will share third place with Japan, while ladies are tied with Hong Kong.
