“Hangzhou Outpost” Lim Do-heon, who competed in the championship, started two consecutive wins… Aiming to win for the first time
It’s time for results for ‘confidence’.
The South Korean men’s volleyball team, led by head coach Lim Do-hun, won 3-1 (26-28, 25-20, 32-30, 25-22) against Pakistan in the second Group F qualifying round for the 2023 Asian Men’s Volleyball Championships at Al-Gadir Stadium in Urmia, Iran, on the 21st.
After winning the first game against Bangladesh on the 19th with a shutout victory, he won two consecutive games to confirm the top spot in Group F. South Korea, which has confirmed its advance to the round of 12 playoffs, will continue its challenge to win the championship.
Pakistan was a competitive team in height and organizational power over its former opponent, “weak” Bangladesh. He started the first set with a blow. In deuce, Na Kyung-bok’s serve error and the opponent’s serve ace gave up the first run. However, South Korea, which soon reorganized its battle lines, balanced by winning the second set and showed its strength in the third set, which is the match.
Following the first set, a neck-and-neck race took place again. The game was decided at 30-30 after exchanging as many as seven deuce. After reaching the set point with an opponent’s serve error, South Korea shook the opponent’s receive with Kim Kyu-min’s powerful serve. Setter Hwang Taek-ui’s winning spike exploded, ending the long set. The national team, which crossed the watershed, won the final victory by bringing the following four sets.
It is a competition that will restore the honor of men’s volleyball. Last month, he lost 0-3 to Bahrain, ranked 77th in the world, in the semifinals of the 2023 Asian Volleyball Federation (AVC) Challenger Cup. After winning the tournament to qualify for the FIVB Challenger Cup, his dream of returning to the 2024 FIVB Volleyball Nations League (VNL) also came to nothing.
He is a “chicken instead of a pheasant,” but he needs to recover his pride by winning this tournament. South Korea has won four times in total and finished second four times in the tournament. He also ranked third nine times. The last championship was in China in 2003. It will aim for the first trophy in 20 years in this tournament.
Above all, it is time to be confident in hunting for the gold medal at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games (held a year later) scheduled for next month. After winning consecutive gold medals in Busan in 2002 and Doha in Qatar in 2006, South Korea finished second and third for the third consecutive time. I want to change the color of the medal again in this competition. 토토사이트먹튀
