South Korea men’s national wheelchair basketball team Head Coach, Sa-Hyun Han, has selected a mix of new and experienced faces for the team to compete at the 2018 World Championships in Hamburg, Germany.

Eight players remain in the side from the team that finished fourth in the Asian Oceania Championships last year in Bangkok, Thailand, whilst four players Dong Ju Lim, Byoung Jai Lee, Jun Seong Kwak and Hui Suk Han will all make their international debut at a major competition.

South Korea made their first appearance at a World Championships in Sydney, Australia in 1998, where they finished eleventh. Since then they competed at the World’s in 2002 and 2010, again finishing eleventh in both. They went on to host the Men’s World Championships in 2014 in Incheon, South Korea and reached their highest ever finish of sixth place – six of the players from that team remain for these World Championships.
