Three-time Olympians in Korean squad

WORLD No 6 South Korea yesterday named an experienced squad for the Dublin Olympic Qualifier from March 10-18.
Seo Jong Ho, with 265 caps, was aptly named as skipper as he first competed in the Sydney 2000 Olympics at the age of 21 where South Korea went on to win the silver medal.
Jong Ho then played in the Athens Olympics in 2004 where his side ended eighth, while in the 2008 Beijing Olympics, he helped his mates stanch the sixth spot.
The three-time Olympian’s inclusion, as well as his Sydney Olympics team-mate Yeo Woon-Kon has added bite to the Korean Qualifier dream.
