North Korea's participation in a global aquatics event held in South Korea could be in doubt. as the North still hasn't confirmed whether it will send a team to the event.
The executive director of FINA, the international swimming federation, said at a press conference on Thursday. that North Korea had recently informed FINA that it wouldn't compete at the World Aquatics Championships, which take place in Gwangju this summer.
He then clarified at a separate meeting that North Korea has not officially pulled out.
The deadline to register for the event is June 12th,… but the federation is keen for North Korea to take part, even if that means extending the registration deadline.
