South Korea’s men’s go team took the top spot at the Asian Games.
The Korean team of Shin Shin-seo, Park Jung-hwan, Kim Myung-hoon, Shin Min-joon, and Byun Sang-il defeated China 4-1 in the men’s team final at the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games on Wednesday at the Chinese Garden in Hangzhou, China.
With the gold medal, South Korea has now won three medals at the Games, including silver in the women’s team event and bronze in the individual event (Shin Shin-seo).
Park has now won two Asian Games gold medals in his career. Korea swept the men’s and women’s team and mixed doubles events at the 2010 Guangzhou Asian Games. 바카라사이트
