Korean officials say united team unlikely

South and North Korea are unlikely to form a united team for the Barcelona Summer Olympics, officials said yesterday.

The International Olympic Committee has given the two Koreas until March 25 to submit a proposal for a single team for the Games in Spain in July, but no action has been taken.

An official at South Korea's Sports and Youth Ministry said agreement on a joint team was unlikely with the deadline only nine days away.
