Islander Peter Gallant, coach of the South Korean team, watched them win 8-6 over Canada’s Rachel Homan squad. The win over one of the favourites has the South Koreans thinking they could be in the medal hunt.
Gallant said he always thought they could win a medal, but that they’ll be taking it game by game.
“I think we believe we can be there towards the end of the week,” he said. “It’s a very tough field and obviously there is a long way to go.”
