The Korean delegation left for Sochi, Russia on Saturday to attend the 2014 Winter Paralympics from March 7 to 16.

Korea is fielding a total of 27 athletes in the four disciplines of alpine ski, cross-country, wheelchair curling and ice sledge hockey. Some 1,100 athletes from 44 countries will take part in the Games.

The country hopes to win a medal for the second consecutive winter Paralympics after it ranked 18th by bagging a silver four years ago in Vancouver.
