Ronald Fowlkes is passionate about sports and its developments around the globe. Recently, he was euphoric to share the news of the decision of North Korea and South Korea to come up with a joint women’s hockey team for 2018 Olympics. He said that it was a big surprise and expressed his hope that it would light the tensions arose between both the countries, especially after the aggressive stance of North Korea in the recent months. Interestingly, the announcement is optimistically viewed by people around the world as an opportunity to resolve the war developments in the region. Fowlkes noted that the hockey fans were happy with the development as it gave positive publicity and significant attention to the upcoming games.
As part of the joint team efforts, North Korea made a request to the organizers of Olympics to expand the total team strength from 23 to 30. With that, seven hockey players from South Korea will join the North Korean team. However, Fowlkes thinks that the social and cultural differences of the athletes from both the countries can create serious challenges to work together, especially due to unexpected and strained circumstances. He also doubts about the morale of South Korean players who do not get the chance to play in the final team. However, he is hopeful that the women hockey would get more attention this time, which is good for the sport that was not getting enough international recognition for long.
