March 15, 2014 (ISN) – Ji-sun Kim made a serious challenge for the international title when she skipped Team South Korea to the playoffs at the 2012 Ford World Women’s Curling Championship.
The South Koreans posted an 8-3 record in the round robin and moved on to defeat Canada’s Heather Nedohin in the 3 vs 4 Page playoff. Kim lost to Mirjam Ott of Switzerland in the semifinal, and dropped another in a rematch with Nedohin in the bronze medal game.
