Korea, led by coach Oh Se-il (Gwangju City Corporation), defeated Mexico 33-20 in the first match of Group C on the first day of the 24th World Women’s Junior Handball Championship held in Skopje, North Macedonia on the 20th (Korean time).

Korea showed off its superiority, with Cha Seo-yeon (Incheon City Hall) scoring 8 goals and Kim Seo-jin (Gwangju City Corporation) scoring 6 goals.
