Korea keep perfect record at AHF Women's Asian Junior Championship

Japan and Korea met again in the final of the AHF Women’s Asian Junior Championship, with Korea winning 26:19 to take their 15 title in the 15 editions of the U20 championship.

The 2019 edition was held at the Hatem Achour Complex in Beirut, Lebanon, and acted as a qualification event for the 2020 IHF Women’s Junior World Championship in Romania.

Both finalists had won all their previous games going into the final with Japan taking a five-goal (26:21) over China in the semi-finals and Korea knocking out host nation Lebanon easily in their last four match (38:16). Lebanon could not end with a medal though as China recovered to take bronze with a 34:17 win. Chinese Taipei squeezed a 5/6 placement win, defeating Kazakhstan by one goal (34:33) and Uzbekistan ensured they did not finish last, defeating India easily (48:24) in their 7/8 placement match.
