PALEMBANG, Indonesia, Aug. 23 (Yonhap) -- The unified Korean rowing team finished in last place in the men's lightweight four competition at the 18th Asian Games on Thursday.

The team composed of South Korea's Park Tae-hyun and Kim Su-min and North Korea's Yun Chol-jin and Kim Chol-jin clocked 6 minutes, 59.61 seconds in the men's lightweight four finals at Jakabaring Rowing & Canoeing Regatta Course in Jakabaring Sport City (JSC) in Palembang, the co-host city of the Asian Games with Jakarta.

China took gold at 6:28.07, followed by Indonesia at 6:31.08.

The unified Korean team reached the finals through repechage.

South and North Korea have formed joint rowing teams in the men's lightweight four and eight as well as the women's lightweight double sculls.

The finals for the men's lightweight eight and the women's lightweight doubles sculls will be Friday.

The two South Koreans, Park and Kim Su-min, said they could have done better if they'd trained longer with their North Korean teammates.

The joint team only started practicing together on July 30, just a couple of weeks prior to the Asian Games.

"We couldn't compete with teams that have been together longer," Park said. "But I think we still had a decent finish. The North Korean rowers also seemed disappointed that they weren't at their best."



   Yun and Kim Chol-jin declined to speak to the South Korean media afterward.

Kim Su-min said he enjoyed the rare opportunity to row on the same team with North Korean athletes.

"I am proud that we had unified Korean teams in rowing," he said. "At first, I was kind of worried about how things were going to turn out. But we all got along really well. If we ever have joint teams again, hopefully we'll get to train together for a longer period of time."
