Korea pull out of Champions Trophy

September 05, 2007 20:31 IST

Asian Games champion Korea on Wednesday became the second team to pull out of the Champions Trophy men's hockey tournament to be held in Lahore [Images].

Koreans decided to give a miss to the tournament, to be held between December 1 and 9, in the wake of Tuesday's twin blasts in Rawalpindi, which killed 25 people.

"Korean Hockey Federation held a meeting in Seoul and decided against the country's participation in Champions Trophy," Korean coach Myung Jun Cho and skipper Seo Jong Ho told reporters at the post match conference after a drawn encounter against China at the Asia Cup tournament in Chennai.

Olympic champion Australia have already pulled of the tournament.
