Korea Women's Team traditionally depends on the quick combination play and mental power. The players are not so tall, but feature the most excellent defense among the world best teams.

The best ranking in the Olympic Games was 3rd place in Montreal in 1976, while in the Asian games, champion in Hiroshima 1994.

This year when it is regarded as the most critical international season on the road to Beijing, Korea Women's Team is joined by new squad fresh in national team, which is expected to give an impulse to the team for better result in international matches. In the long term view, KVA will maintain this team to 2008 Olympic.

Declaration by the Head Coach

- KOR team was not so good condition at the 2007 Asian Women's Championship as many players who participated in 2006 Women's World Championship was absent due to injuries. However for the 2007 World Cup, they recovered and came back to National team. Therefore I predict that KOR team will show their best performance in this prestigious event although their conditions does not get back on the trail compared to Asian Championship. No one should tell that the ticket to Olympic lay beyond our reach. We are heading to 2008 Beijing Olympic Games and our relentless ever efforts will make it come true.
