The voice of volleyball team ace Kim Yeon-kyung (Shanghai, China) that came out through the microphone was split.
I can imagine how shouting and encouraging the juniors during the game.
Kim Yeon-kyung took the center of the national team on and off the court and took her team to the Olympic quarterfinals.
Kim Yeon-kyung, the set score 3-2 (17-25 25-17 28-26 18-25 15-13) of Korea in the women’s quarterfinals of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics volleyball women’s quarterfinals, ‘strong enemy’, held at Ariake Arena in Tokyo, Japan on the 4th local time. After winning, he smiled broadly.
He met with reporters in the joint coverage area (mixt zone) and said, “No one would have expected our semi-finals before the opening of the Olympics.
He continued, “Honestly, after the first quarter-final opponent was decided as Turkey, I didn’t think it would be easy for me to advance to the semifinals. (I fell asleep at around 4 in the morning) and woke up around 5 in the morning today,” he confessed.
Kim Yeon-kyung, who announced her retirement from participating in the Olympic Games at the end of the Tokyo Olympics, literally poured out everything she did in the match against Turkey.
He showed tremendous concentration in every moment and scored the team’s highest score of 28 points.
In the 3rd set 24-23, which was a match, when the referee declared an ambiguous four-hit offense over Yang Hyo-jin (Hyundai E&C)’s play, he violently protested and received a warning.
Kim Yeon-kyung said, “Actually, I didn’t like the referee’s call before the game.
