From August 1 to 10, the 11th World Korfball Championship was held in Durban, South Africa. ZZU took on the main task of this competition. Prof. Ma Xiangcheng was the head coach and Zhao Jing and other 11 students were athletes.

In the group stage, the Chinese team played against China’s Macao, Suriname and Hungary respectively, claiming three wins in straight sets. They defeated Slovakia in the cross-match on August 5 and entered the top eight of the World Championship. In the quarter-finals, the Chinese team tenaciously defeated the powerful Portugal and entered the semi-finals. Although in the subsequent semi-finals and final 3-4 match, our team regrettably lost to the current world champion Netherlands and the world’s second-ranked Chinese Taipei, still won the Chinese team’s best result in this event, a historic breakthrough.

On the afternoon of August 9 ( local time), the Chinese Consulate General in Durban invited all the coaches and athletes of the Chinese Korfball team to have a focus group. Fei Mingxing, the Consul General and all the staff of the Consulate General greatly appreciated the superb performance of the Chinese Korfball team in this competition and congratulated the Chinese team on their outstanding achievements.

On August 13, the Social Sports Guidance Center of the General Administration of Sport of China sent a congratulatory letter to ZZU. The letter said that ZZU teachers and students have made outstanding contributions to the historic breakthrough of China’s korfball. The National Sports General Administration’s Social Sports Guidance Center extended warm congratulations to the ZZU Korfball Team and sincere thanks to ZZU for having supported the development of the Korfball sport for a long time.
