Opportunity is right in front of your eyes… Will the earnest ‘Volleyball Empress’ Kim Yeon-kyung hold her championship trophy?
“I don’t want to miss this opportunity.”
‘Volleyball Empress’ Kim Yeon-kyung (35) said this after she led a set score 3-0 (25-21 27-25 25-15) victory in the match against Hyundai E&C held at the Suwon Gymnasium in Gyeonggi-do on the 7th. On this day, 2nd place Heungkuk Life Insurance (20 wins and 6 losses) chased to the bottom of the chin, matching the lead Hyundai Engineering & Construction (21 wins and 5 losses) with 60 points.
It is an opportunity for Heungkuk Life Insurance, who chased Hyundai E&C throughout the season. Hyundai E&C replaced Yasmin, who had been removed from the team due to back pain, from mid-December, but in the game, starting player Kim Yeon-gyeon was also injured and is in a state of sorrow.
Heungkuk Life Insurance did not have a smooth season either. Just a month ago, in the aftermath of high-ranking players’ intervention in the club, former manager Kwon Soon-chan was sacked, and internal conflict was engulfed. Currently스포츠토토, he is playing the season under the system of acting coach Kim Dae-kyung.
Nevertheless, the reason why Kim Yeon-kyung can reveal his desire to win is because Heungkuk Life Insurance’s power has reached its peak.
The synergy with other players centered on Kim Yeon-kyung is having a great effect.
Setter Lee Won-jung, who was traded from GS Caltex at the end of December last year, is proud of his collaboration with Kim Yeon-kyung. Lee Won-jung, who started for the second time after transferring to Hyundai E&C, distributed the ball appropriately so that Kim Yeon-kyung could score. Thanks to this, Kim Yeon-kyung’s attack share on this day was 41.86%, the highest this season. Lee Won-jung Personally, despite being a setter, he recorded 4 blocking points, which is the majority of team blocking (7).
Acting manager Kim Dae-kyung said, “Thanks to Won-jung, Yeon-kyung’s share has increased, which is helpful to the team aggressively.” Kim Yeon-kyung also said, “Since I have been the main striker since I was a rookie, the more I touch the ball, the more I get a sense of rhythm.”
In addition, Yelena, the main gun, has been attacking by being divided into front and rear positions with Kim Yeon-kyung from the KGC Ginseng Corporation battle on the 3rd and deployed diagonally. As Kim Yeon-kyung handled it in the avant-garde and took possession, the attack that had been driven by Yelena was dispersed and the burden was relieved. Thanks to this, Kim Yeon-kyung and Yelena were able to score 22 and 20 points side by side. Yelena predicted that “breathing will get better in the future.”
Kim Yeon-kyung tightened his tension, saying, “I think the future game will be more important.” He, who won MVP at the All-Star Game on the 29th of last month, said, “I want to finish with good results in the championship game. He made up his mind, saying, “I want to receive an award that can be received with good grades.” Heungkuk Life Insurance will face IBK Industrial Bank at home on the 11th after taking a 3-day break.
