North Korean Universiade Delegates to Visit Gwangju


North Korean Summer Universiade Delegates will visit Gwangju on April 11th to attend the ‘HoD or Head of Delegation Preparative Conference’ in which nearly 200 delegates from 60 countries will take part.

Following the official registration for participation in the Universiade last month on March 3rd, North Korea and its university sports officials notified Gwangju organizers of its participation in the HoD Preparative Conference meeting.

Taking place from April 11th to the 15th in Gwangju, the HoD Conference meeting will inspect the overall preparation process for the multi-sport event in Gwangju and decide on a list of matches governed by International University Sports Federation.

North Korea previously announced it will compete in 2 group matches, Women’s Handball and Football and the match-up list for respective sports will be revealed on April 13th.

Meanwhile, all eyes are on whether Gwangju organizers and municipal officials will be able to discuss a torch-relay at the inter-Korean joint security area at Panmunjeom and the participation of a North Korean cheering squad with the North Korean delegates during their visit to Gwangju.
