Two Koreas Consider Unified Women's Ice Hockey Team at PyeongChang

South and North Korea are mulling the possibility of fielding a unified women's ice hockey team for the PyeongChang Winter Olympics. 

South Korean Vice Sports Minister Roh Tae-kang told Yonhap News Friday that Seoul made several proposals regarding their cooperation on the PyeongChang Games during recent high-level inter-Korean talks, including marching together during the opening ceremony. 

Roh is one of the five South Korean officials who sat down with their North Korean counterparts during Tuesday's inter-Korean dialogue. 

If the two Koreas confirm the formation of a joint women's ice hockey team, it will be the third unified Korean team on a global sports stage following the two previous ones during the World Table Tennis Championship and the FIFA World Youth Championship, both held in 1991. 

It will also mark a first for the two Koreas to form a unified team for a comprehensive international sporting event such as the Olympics and Asian Games.
