Korean Women - Strauss Crown

As Wang and Megura have been the big Pacific Rim names on the women's circuit for the past few years it seems that S.Korean women have quietly been preparing to host the worlds this March in Gangneung.

Congratulations to Kim MiYeon and her crew for taking this event on the weekend.

It doesn't seem that long ago Korea was presenting strong mens' and womens' teams. Obviously, the Asian race is on! I look forward to seeing team Kim as the host team in the worlds. They'll probably be in contention.

Since KOR is the host nation, we'll have three Asian teams at the worlds?

I believe there will still only be two. Korea gets a spot as host, and the other countries will have to battle for the one remaining spot.

It's kind of weird that the South Koreans are only now starting to re-emerge again. If memory serves me correctly, Mi-Yeon Kim represented S.Korea in Bismarck in 2002, and took CJ to the 10th end with a very big chance of winning if not for a fantastic final draw by CJ to win (9:7 I believe?)...so they were always talented technically, but then faded away as the Chinese began to emerge. So with their berth guaranteed in Gangneung City, the race will be on for the final Asian spot. Unless S.Korea wins the Pacifics in Naseby, the winner of the Pacific Championships will gain the final berth to the Women's Worlds.

Its kind of funny in the pacific. First japan really dominated and then the koreans came along and challenged the japanese. The chinese came up to dominate both korea and japan for a number of years and korea did kind of fade away. Now the korean women anyway are mounting a resurgance.

Its kind of sad to think that the japanese program has kind of stalled out. Moe meguro had that fantastic run in 2008 when she really should have beaten jenniffer and made an all asian final and you kind of thought that japanese curling had really finally arrived but then meguro retired.

Alot of the great japanese teams over the years have retired so young and really all the potential they would have had goes wasted. But still you have to ask why the japanese program, although the oldest of the pacific region is, of the 3 asian countries the least successful. Also have to wonder if the japanese program will ever be able to get to the level of the chinese and koreans

also i wonder if any team from the chinese taipei will ever break through. I dont really know much about their programs.

There's a huge cost for the Asian Teams to have their squads train overseas. Probably one reason why it is imperative for certain teams to win their National Championships.

Additionally, for the privately funded Japanese Sqauds I think this is a huge factor. Travel to Vancouver from their port of call, then domestic/regional connection flights, hotel, ice rental, team registration fees etc. No wonder it is easier for the Government to paid for their training...

Years ago, there was a group called the "Fighting Yams" who were college kids based out of Madison, WI. They'd make a yearly trek to the Pacific play downs.

Haven't heard much since.
