Korea entered the opening ceremony as the 22nd country out of 36 participating countries.

The flag bearer was national curling team member Soonyoung Yoon (Seoul Disabled Curling Association).

Korea dispatched a national team of 52 people to this tournament,

including 18 athletes, 13 game officials, and 21 headquarters executives.

The national team will participate in four events – curling, alpine skiing, cross-country skiing,

and snowboarding – and aim to win a silver medal in the women’s curling team event.

The Deaflympics is the largest international all-around competition for hearing-impaired athletes and,

like the Olympics, is held every four years.

This competition was scheduled to be held in 2023,

but was postponed by a year due to circumstances at the venue.

This is the third time that Korea has participated in the Winter Games,

following the 2015 Khanty-Mansiysk and 2019 Valtellina and Balchiavenna competitions.

About 1,500 athletes from 36 countries will participate in this tournament and compete until the 13th.

Some sports have already started playing.

The curling mixed doubles pair of Yoon Soon-young and Kim Ji-soo recorded 4 wins and 1 loss in the preliminary round held from the 29th of last month to the 2nd of this month.
