CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – It was announced recently that former Harvard women's hockey player, Randi Griffin '10, has been named to the unified Korean hockey team for the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics.
Griffin is a dual citizen of the United States and South Korea and was a four-year letterwinner for the Crimson from 2006-10. In 125 career games, the Apex, N.C. native collected 21 goals and 18 assists for 39 points. During her senior season, Griffin was a finalist for the ECAC Hockey Student-Athlete of the Year Award, led the Crimson and was tied for 10th in the nation with seven power-play goals, ranked fourth on the team with 21 points and scored a power-play goal in the 2010 NCAA quarterfinals against Cornell.
The announcement of a unified North and South Korean hockey team came just last week, and it is expected that a contingent North Korean players will join the 23-member South Korean roster. The South Korean national team is currently ranked 22nd in the world by the IIHF and is coached by Sarah Murray, who played for the University of Minnesota-Duluth from 2006-10.
The 2018 Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea are set to open on Thursday, Feb. 8.
