The Korean national team defeated Malaysia 63 to 29 in the third game of the wheelchair basketball group B held at the Hangzhou Olympic Center Gymnasium in Zhejiang, China on the 21st. Korea previously defeated Chinese Taipei 67 to 21 and defeated Japan, the 2020 Tokyo Paralympic runners-up, 52 to 38. Ahead of the opening of the tournament on the 22nd, they had three consecutive wins.

On this day, Korea started a rotation by excluding key players Cho Seung-hyun (39, Chuncheon Tigers) and Kim Dong-hyeon (35, Jeju Samdasoo) from the starting lineup. The score increased to 23-11 double score in the first quarter. They tied up the opposing offense by allowing 4 points in the second quarter and 6 points in the third quarter.

Lim Dong-ju (35, Coway Blue Wheels) scored 12 points, Kim Sang-yeol (40, Chuncheon Tigers) scored 10 points and 8 rebounds, and Cho Seung-hyun scored 10 points.

The national team, which is on an undefeated streak, will look to solidify its lead in the group’s final match against Kuwait on the 24th. If Korea passes the preliminary round as first place in Group B, it will compete with the second place team in Group A on the 26th for a ticket to the finals. In Group A, Iran and China are considered the top two. Iran won 72-42 against China in the preliminaries that day. Korea won a gold medal in Incheon in 2014, and bronze medals in the 2010 Guangzhou Games and the 2018 Indonesia Games.

Wheelchair basketball, which was invented in England in 1945 for the purpose of rehabilitation of patients with spinal cord injuries, is now distributed in 97 countries. The stadium specifications are the same as for non-disabled basketball, but there are differences in some rules, such as allowing double dribbling. Athletes are given a sport grade (1 to 4.5) determined by the International Wheelchair Basketball Federation (IWBF), with the greater the limitations in physical activity, the lower the grade. The total rating of players entering the court must not exceed 14.
