The men’s water polo team, which is challenging for the first Asian Games medal in 33 years, will conduct training in Hungary for three weeks.
The Korea Swimming Federation announced on the 18th that the men’s national water polo team led by leaders Jin Man-geun and Kim Ki-woo left for Hungary for three weeks of overseas training.

Afterwards, he will move to Gödöllö, undergo special training with the Hungarian under-18 national team leader, and return home on March 14th.
