Reporter Kim Dong-chan = Park Chan-suk (64), the main player who won the silver medal in women’s basketball at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics, was appointed as the first coach of the women’s basketball team at Seodaemun-gu, Seoul, which is scheduled to be established in March.
Coach Park Chan-sook, who we met at the head coach appointment ceremony held on the 31st at the main building of Seodaemun-gu Office, said, “As an eternal basketball player, this is something I always wanted in my heart, and I am thrilled that my dream has come true.” I am grateful,” he said.
This is the first time coach Park Chan-sook took the helm of a unified team, whether professional, business or school.
Coach Park explained, “She coached the East Asian Games and the Jones Cup national team. In the past, she coached the Pacific Chemistry and Asian Championships, but this is the first time she has coached a single team.”

Director Park said, “People around me say, ‘What does my grandmother teach me?’ said.
He graduated from Seoul Culture and Arts University in 2019 at the age of 60. It was the fruit of ‘manhak’ that started college life belatedly as a 14th class in the department of social and physical education at this school.
Coach Park, who advised, “Don’t think it’s too late for juniors, and always learn,” said coach Park, who announced that he would form a team through open recruitment ahead of the founding ceremony in March.
Coach Park, who will conduct tryouts to select players, said, “I hope that friends who did not go to pros or colleges, and players who went pros but did not get a chance to participate will challenge our team again and seize the opportunity.” Because it is bound to increase, it will be rewarding for my team to come out with a player who works hard and advances to the pro again.”
He also emphasized that he would work hard on activities such as donating talents to school teams and sports teams in Seodaemun-gu. 스포츠토토
