Historic games medal
A COMBINED Koreas crew earned a historic bronze medal at the Asian Games by finishing third in the 200-metre dragon boat final behind China and games host Indonesia.
It was the first time a combined team from North Korea and South Korea has won a medal at a major multi-sport international event.
It was awarded to Korea – the name given to the combined teams the countries entered in rowing, canoeing and women’s basketball.
The combined Koreas basketball team is thought to be a gold-medal chance.
