-Gwangju FINA Worlds- S. Korea gets 1st women's water polo goal


South Korea scored its first women's water polo goal at the 2019 FINA World Aquatics Championships in Gwangju on Tuesday.


Kyung Da Seul scored the teams first goal midway through the fourth quarter.


South Korea settled for a 30-1 defeat to Russia in Group B action at the Nambu University Water Polo Competition Venue.


Some may say the defeats are heartbreaking, but South Koreas goal to score one point throughout the tournament has already been met.


South Korea received its place in the tournament as the host nation. The women's team was only assembled in May and started their practice in June.


A dozen of the 13 players are teenagers with swimming backgrounds and no previous experience in water polo.


South Korea will next face Canada for the final preliminary match on Thursday.
