[ROAD TO BEIJING] Curling
The Korean women’s curling team earned their Beijing Olympic berth after beating Latvia in the women’s World Curling Federation Olympic qualification playoff on Dec. 18 in Leeuwarden, the Netherlands.
During the PyeongChang Games, Team Kim were famous not only for winning a silver medal in a sport that was unheard of in Korea, but also for doing it in style.
In Beijing, Kim Seon-yeong has taken as lead. Kim Cho-hi takes second and Kim Kyeong-ae takes third, with Kim Yeong-mi as reserve.
