At the 31st World University Games Chengdu 2021, Team Korea (headed by Yoon Oh-nam) won 17 gold, 18 silver, and 23 bronze medals to finish third overall.

The 344 athletes from the Republic of Korea competing in 15 sports finished the Games with a total of 58 medals, including seven golds in taekwondo, four in archery, three in shooting, two in judo, and one in fencing.

The Korean athletes achieved their goals in their traditional strengths of taekwondo (7 gold, 1 silver, 5 bronze), archery (4 gold, 3 silver, 1 bronze), and shooting (3 gold, 2 silver, 2 bronze), and exceeded expectations in judo. In addition, the team also won valuable medals in basic sports, including diving (silver 4, bronze 4), management (bronze 1), and artistic gymnastics (bronze 2).

The Korea Olympic Committee (KOC) operated a medical team to ensure that the athletes participating in the Games were in top physical condition, and conducted safety, human rights, and doping-related 토토사이트 training in advance to ensure that the athletes competed in a healthy and safe manner. The KOC also provided support for the athletes by airlifting kimchi and other Korean food to provide them with nutritious meals. For athletes who celebrated their birthdays locally, we organized a party with gifts from the tournament mascot to ease the disappointment of not being able to be with their families.

Meanwhile, the Korean contingent will hold a farewell ceremony on Tuesday, August 8, before attending the closing ceremony at Chengdu Outdoor Music Park at 20:00 local time, and the main body of the team will depart on Wednesday, August 9, on charter flight OZ3245, arriving at Incheon Airport at 19:30 local time on Wednesday, August 9, to complete the long journey.
