Korea judo team rebuilds their pride … 2nd place in total ranking



The judo team in South Korea has rebuilt its pride by finishing second at the Judo World Cup 2018.
South Korea won two gold medals and one bronze medal at the World Cup in Baku, Azerbaijan, to finish in second place, just behind Japan.
The results represent a comeback after South Korea previously failed to win any gold medals at the Rio 2016 Olympics and Judo World Cup 2017.
South Korea also entered a unified judo team with North Korea for the first time, winning a historic bronze medal against Germany in the mixed-team tournament.
The good results have led to suggestions that the United Korea team could compete at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
