Little Team Kim upset Canada in the opening match of the World Team Curling Championship.
This is a different squad than the ones who won the Olympic Silver medal. They are having a good run lately:
The Korean team also played in the 2019 world junior championships in Liverpool, N.S., finishing just out of the playoffs at 5-4. They also have won gold and silver medals at World Cup events this season.
I should also point out that Korea lost to the eventual champion in the semis in a playoff. So they were legit one of the four best teams here. I feel like a world championship might not be so far fetched in the near future!
