  • [SPORTS RUNDOWN] Korea Finishes 2nd At Women's Hockey World Championship

And now for the latest from the world of sports, Ron Chang has this week's rundown.


South Korea has finished the women's world hockey championship in second place.

The 17th-ranked team clobbered Poland 9-2 at the Division I Group B tournament in Asiago, Italy, on Saturday, with defender Marissa Brandt scoring four goals.

It was South Korea's first appearance at a Division I Group B event -- the team qualified for the tournament after winning the Division II Group A tournament at home last year.

Host Italy won the tournament after a 1-nil victory over China.

Shifting gears,

Short track speed skater Shim Suk-hee has placed first overall in the national trials.

During the second round of trials yesterday, Shim crossed the finish line first in the 1,000 meter with a time of one minute 32.762 seconds.

Last week, the Olympic gold medalist won in all four races of the first round.

Meanwhile, for the men, PyeongChang Olympic gold medalist Lim Hyo-jun also placed first overall after winning all races in both rounds.

And, the Korea Baseball Organization has surpassed the one million mark in attendance this season.

The KBO said its 10 clubs have drawn some 1,049,800 fans through 92 games as of Sunday, with an average of around 11,410 fans per game.

The total number represents a 4 percent increase after the same number of games in 2017.

The SK Wyverns enjoyed the biggest surge in attendance followed by the KT Wiz.
