Korean women’s volleyball team won
One day was enough to shock me. Korean women’s volleyball won against Nepal and advanced to the next round.
The Korean women’s volleyball team won with a set score of 3-0 (25-21, 25-14, 25-11) in the second match of Group C against Nepal at the ‘2023 Hangzhou Asian Games’ held at the Changqian Campus gymnasium of Hangzhou Normal University, Zhejiang Province, China.
. Korea, which lost to Vietnam and defeated Nepal, finished the group stage with 1 win and 1 loss and advanced to the quarterfinals.
Nepal took a day off after the Vietnam game, and Korea played two days in a row. In addition, we had to overcome the psychological shock of the Vietnam War ending in a 2-0 to 2-3 defeat.
Korea seemed unable to escape the effects of the previous day’s defeat until the first set. However, they dominated Nepal from the second set and finished the match with a complete win.
So-Hwi Kang (GS Caltex) scored the most points, including 4 serve aces. Seonwoo Lee (CheongKwanJang) followed with 10 points. 카지노사이트랭크
Korea opened the first set with an attack by Jeong Ho-young (Cheong Kwan-jang).
The strange trend continued as the team ran away to 7-4 with Lee Seon-woo’s serve ace, but was caught up with consecutive errors.
Nepal, which was thought to be a sacrifice for one win, followed persistently. Korea was dragged down 15-17.
Korea, which balanced the score at 18-18 with Kang So-hwi’s consecutive scores and Kim Da-in (Hyundai Engineering & Construction)’s serve ace, finished the set with a strong strike. Lee Seon-woo’s attack was successful and Kang So-hwi’s serve ace pushed the score to 23-19. Ho-Young Jeong put the finishing touches on it.
The second set went much easier.
Unlike the first set, the number of errors decreased, receiving stabilized, and blocking became more sophisticated.
Lee Seon-woo and Pyo Seung-ju (IBK Industrial Bank) scored, followed by Lee Da-hyeon’s blocking and the opponent’s mistakes, widening the score gap to 14-10.
As the score gap widened, everything went well.
Even though the toss was unstable, it led to a score. Kang So-hwi came down and pushed the ball over, leading to a score, making it 21-13.
The second set ended with a successful relay attack by Park Eun-jin (Cheong Kwan-jang) and Kang So-hwi.
Nepal’s play became noticeably dull in the third set.
Korea quickly took the third set and finished the game.
Vietnam, which Korea contributed to a shocking comeback defeat on the 1st, completely defeated Nepal. They won the game on the 30th of last month with a set score of 3-0, but gave up only 4 points in the first set.
Following a 25-4 win in the first set, the total score was 75-33 with 25-16 and 25-13.
Korea suffered a shocking come-from-behind defeat against Vietnam the previous day (the 1st). They led 2-0 in the set score but lost 2-3.
At the Asian Championships on August 30, they went from 2-0 to a ‘reverse sweep’ loss of 2-3, and that scene was repeated at the Asian Games.
It was an upset defeat that clearly showed the aftermath of the failure to change generations.
Korean women’s volleyball has seen its performance in international competitions plummet after the retirement of ‘world class’ Kim Yeon-kyung.
The women’s volleyball team, led by coach Cesar Hernández (Spain), has performed so poorly in recent international competitions that it was difficult to even win one game.
They lost all 12 games in the 2023 FIVB (International Volleyball Federation) Volleyball Nations League.
They ranked 6th at the Asian Championships, and in the 2024 Paris Olympics preliminaries held just before the Asian Games, they finished in last place, losing all 7 matches.
The Korean women’s volleyball team, which has won medals in all but one of the previous Asian Games, arrived in Hangzhou this time with only concerns.
The team’s hearts became even heavier as they lost 2-3 in the first game. There were also players shedding tears.
Captain Park Jeong-ah (Pepper Savings Bank) said, “I prepared a lot, but I am disappointed with the result.
It is disappointing that the result was not good, and since there are games left, I think I need to prepare well again.”
“I think we need to work on a lot of things, like being anxious in key moments and being a little bit better on offense,” she said.
Although it was a complete victory against Nepal, where victory was taken for granted, this victory was an opportunity for the team to smile again.
Meanwhile, women’s volleyball will take a one-day break on the 3rd and then enter the quarterfinals starting on the 4th.
There will be a semifinal match and a ranking match for medal eliminated teams on the 6th, and the final will be held on the 7th.
