After the first-ever inter-Korean team ball game at the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games, Kang Isul (KB) said, “I felt a little disappointed that the North Korean players intentionally avoided me. “South Korea and North Korea met in the women’s basketball group stage on Monday at the Hangzhou Olympic Sports Center Gymnasium in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, China. South Korea won the game, 81-62, but the game was more about the inter-Korean encounter than the result .This is because women’s basketball was the last sport in which the two Koreas competed as a unified team at the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta-Palembang .South Korea’s Kang Isul, Park Ji-soo (KB) and Park Ji-hyun (Woori Bank) were part of that team, while North Korea’s Jung Sung-sim, Roh Sook-young and Kim Hye-yeon competed as a single team in 2018. “We had talked about not looking away if (an opponent) falls, but helping them up first,” Kang said after the match, adding, “There weren’t many situations like that, but I was a little upset that (the North Korean players) seemed to be avoiding it a bit intentionally. “”Still, there were a few players who played on the same team (in 2018) and it was disappointing to see them deliberately avoid eye contact or not give us a high-five at the end,” he added .Outside the stadium, he said, “We passed each other a few times on the road, but when I called out to them, they didn’t look at me, and the coach avoided eye contact, so I thought, ‘He’s not going to say hello .In the game, South Korea battled back from a 10-point deficit early in the second quarter to regain the lead, eventually reaching more than 20 points before winning by 19.”We were playing against North Korea on Chuseok, so our mindset was different and we were nervous,” Kang said. “We wanted to do well, so we put a lot of effort into the first half, but in the second half, those things came together and our shots became more balanced.” Park Ji-hyun also said, “It was different to play against the other team after five years, but I think a lot of people were expecting and cheering for Chuseok, and I wanted to show a good performance.” “We didn’t have a lot of information about North Korea, so it was a 스포츠토토 bit difficult in the beginning,” Park added, “Fortunately, we were able to show it with a good result.”
