Two losses, and no medals. The voices of athletes are spreading loudly in Hangzhou, China.
The Korean women’s volleyball team, led by Coach Cesar, entered Hangzhou, China on the 26th and is preparing for the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games.
After finishing the 2024 Paris Olympics preliminaries held in Poland, he came straight to Hangzhou and is in the midst of local adaptation training. Lee Da-hyeon (Hyundai Engineering & Construction), who is known for her excitement, is leading the training atmosphere with her energetic spirit. Also, even when the players made mistakes, they shouted ‘It’s okay’, and when there was a good offense and a good defense, they said ‘Nice’ and joined forces.
Coach Cesar has setters Kim Da-in (Hyundai E&C) and Kim Ji-won (GS Caltex), middle blockers Lee Joo-ah (Heungkuk Life Insurance) and Lee Da-hyun (Hyundai E&C), Park Eun-jin and Jeong Ho-young, and aposite spikers Lee Seon-woo (Cheong Kwan-jang) and Moon Jeong-won (Korea) for this tournament. Korea Road Corporation), outside heaters Kang So-hwi (GS Caltex), Pyo Seung-ju (IBK Industrial Bank), Park Jeong-ah (Pepper Savings Bank), and libero Kim Yeon-gyeon (Hyundai Engineering & Construction) entered the competition.
Korea was in Group C along with Vietnam and Nepal. They will play against Vietnam on October 1st at 10:30 am and against Nepal on October 2nd at 10:30 am. If you place in the top 2 of your group, you will play the quarterfinals against the 1st and 2nd place teams in Group A.
In order to advance to the higher rounds, you must win the first game against Vietnam. Korea suffered a shocking 2-3 loss in the preliminary round of the 2023 Asian Volleyball Confederation (AVC) Asian Women’s Volleyball Championship held in Thailand last August. The shock of defeat was more than doubled because Vietnam was considered a country below them.
It is now falling behind in the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) rankings. Vietnam ranked 39th and Korea ranked 40th. Of course, Vietnam rarely participated in international competitions, and Korea lost points with each competition, so there was almost no difference in the rankings, but it would still be a shame to fall behind Vietnam. Coach Cesar is also focusing on the first game against Vietnam. 토토
Coach Cesar, who met at the Hangzhou Normal University gymnasium in Hangzhou, China on the 29th, said, “The first game is important. We have to beat Vietnam to increase our chances of advancing to the semifinals. “Otherwise, even if we get to the semifinals, there is a higher chance of meeting China,” he said. “The players have already experienced the importance of the first match at the Asian Championships. “I know very well how important it is to win the Vietnam War,” he said.
He continued, “We arrived a little early and are preparing well, step by step,” and “We need the whole team to come together.” “We have to show team spirit in every game,” he said.
The players also know the importance of the Vietnam War.
Captain Park Jeong-ah (Pepper Savings Bank) said, “Like the coach said, I think the Vietnam game is the most important game. We didn’t do well at the Asian Championships. I am preparing a lot for the Vietnam War and watching a lot of videos. “I think we need to do our best to lead to good results,” he said.
Middle blocker Jeong Ho-young (Cheong Kwan-jang) said, “Since I’m here, I have to wear a medal around my neck. “The biggest first step on the way to a medal is winning the Vietnam War,” he said emphatically.
Some people are concerned that women’s volleyball’s recent poor performance in international competitions may continue in the Asian Games. But the lid has not been opened yet. Everything won’t be known until the game is over.
ill Cesarho, who has not forgotten his shocking defeat, succeed in getting revenge?
If you place in the top 2 of the upper group, you will play the 1st and 2nd place teams in Group A (North Korea, China, India) in the quarterfinals.
