The catcher and the runner on third base collided at the home of ‘Heartbreak’, Kim In-tae’s fighting spirit to break the losing streak

The catcher, who tried to tag immediately after catching the thrower and the runner who flew toward the home to score a first run, collapsed after colliding at home.

When the fallen runner In-tae Kim complained of pain and could not get up, head coaches of both teams ran out to check on the fallen player.

Doosan, which had to end a five-game losing streak, and NC, which had Ace Peddy as their starting pitchers. At the beginning of the game, Doosan Kim In-tae, who flew toward home to score the first point, collapsed after colliding with NC catcher Ahn Joong-yeol.

Doosan attacked in the 3rd inning, where the 0-0 tight match was continuing. I took the opportunity to raise the first point against NC starter Pedi. Leading batter Kim In-tae went on base with a walk after a 7-pitch game. Afterwards, Park Yoo-yeon succeeded in bunting from the first pitch as planned, leading to 1st out and 2nd base. Doosan got a chance to go 1st, 1st and 3rd with Park Joon-young’s infield hit. Subin Sue pulled NC starter Pedy’s 4th low changeup in a 1B 2S unfavorable ball count.

First baseman Hyung-jun Yoon, who was playing forward defense, caught the ball and immediately threw it home.

Third base runner Kim In-tae ran with all his might to score the first run. First baseman Yoon Hyung-joon’s throw was high, so catcher Ahn Joong-yeol, who jumped and caught it, continued the tag action as he landed.

Catcher Ahn Joong-yeol, who jumped and caught a high throw, and Kim In-tae, who slid towards home, ‘Two players doing their best’
At this time, Kim In-tae’s left foot, sliding toward the home, was caught by An Joong-yeol’s spike that landed. Kim In-tae collapsed on the spot complaining of pain. It was not intentional, but NC catcher Ahn Joong-yeol looked at the runner who collapsed after colliding with himself with a worried look. NC Jeon Jeon also ran to Doosan Chief Kim Han-soo and looked at Kim In-tae, who had collapsed. Fortunately, Kim In-tae got up with no major injuries, supported by a trainer.

Meanwhile, when umpire Jeong Jong-soo declared an out for the collision at home, manager Lee Seung-yeop requested a video review to see if the catcher blocked the home base. As a result of the reading, it was recognized as a movement that naturally continued in the defense process, and the centrifuge was maintained.메이저놀이터

Doosan, who won 4-1, ended a five-game losing streak.

Shall we soar to the highest… Woo Sang-hyeok confident of gold

The highest jumper in the world. ‘Smile Jumper’ Woo Sang-hyeok (Yongin City Hall) dreams of this goal. Woo Sang-hyeok, who challenged the world wall with his unique confident attitude, aims for a gold medal at the 2023 World Championships in Athletics.

The 19th World Championships in Athletics will be held in Budapest, Hungary from the 19th to the 27th. Woo Sang-hyeok, who had the best track record (silver medal) in Korean track and field history at the World Championships held in Eugene last year, is challenging for a second consecutive world championship medal as well as a gold medal. Woo Sang-hyeok promised during the media open training ahead of the World Championships on the 2nd, “I am well prepared. I will definitely bring the gold medal I entrusted to me.”먹튀검증

Woo Sang-hyeok kept the world’s top class by consistently recording more than 2m30 in domestic and international competitions this year. The World Association of Athletics Federations analyzed the athletes who will participate in the men’s high jump at this event and expressed anticipation, saying, “Woo Sang-hyeok will take on a strong challenge.” Woo Sang-hyeok, who also adjusted his diet to create the best weight (65 kg) for his game, expressed his confidence by writing “ready” on his social network service (SNS) on the 16th.

He must, of course, go beyond the opponents he has to contend with. Woo Sang-hyeok’s personal record this season is 2m33, set at the National Track and Field Championships held in Jeongseon, Gangwon in June. In terms of records alone, he is ranked 6th in the world.

The strongest competitor is Mutaz Esa Barshim (Qatar), who is aiming for a fourth consecutive world title. Barshim jumped 2m37 last year, beating Woo Sang-hyeok (2m35) by 2cm, and achieved three consecutive victories following the 2017 and 2019 competitions. Barshim also set the record for the men’s high jump this year. Last month, he jumped 2m36 at the Silesian Diamond League in Poland, setting the men’s high jump record this year.

Jeonbon Harrison (USA), who made a rapid rise in the men’s high jump this year, is also a candidate to compete with Woo Sang-hyeok for the championship. Harrison reached the top in all five competitions he participated in this season, including winning the London Diamond League last month by recording 2m35. 2021 Tokyo Olympics gold medalist Gianmarco Tamberry (Italy) will also go to the world championships in good condition, such as overcoming injury and recently recording 2m34.

Woo Sang-hyeok’s personal record is 2m36 indoors and 2m35 outdoors. The average record for winning the three recent world championships is 2m36. Woo Sang-hyeok can look forward to the gold medal if he breaks his own record.

Woo Sang-hyeok said, “The world championship is a ranking fight. I competed for medals at the world championship last year and had a good experience while participating in many international competitions. I will jump without any burden.” Woo Sang-hyeok will hold the preliminary round at 5:35 pm on the 20th and the final at 2:55 am (Korean time above) on the 23rd.

Klinsmann snipes at coach: “Not an easy guy, poor execution…never won a game in Korea”

Jürgen Klinsmann’s controversy has come under scrutiny.

The U.S. edition of sports media ‘bolavip’ said on the 18th, “Klinsmann is not an easy person. He is a legendary striker, but his execution is not good.”

“Klinsmann won the 2013 Gold Cup as head coach of the U.S. national team, but he also reached the semifinals of the 2016 Copa America Centenario, losing to Argentina and Colombia,” it said, highlighting his past performance.

“Klinsmann’s South Korea has yet to win a game. They have been criticized for their lack of promise.”

He also mentioned that Klinsmann will soon hold a Zoom press conference with the South Korean media.

Klinsmann took over the reins of the South Korean national team in February, replacing Paulo Bento.

Klinsmann held a press conference in March to formalize his three-year, five-month journey to qualify for the 2026 World Cup in North and Central America.안전놀이터

Klinsmann’s appointment was met with some skepticism. His track record hasn’t been good. Most notably, he’s managed teams from home while living abroad.

Klinsmann was also criticized for his frequent traveling and working from home during his time with the German and US national teams.

Living locally was also an important part of the process of taking over as head coach of the South Korean national team.

“Of course I will live in Korea,” Klinsmann promised at the time.

However, Klinsmann’s promise has not been fulfilled.

Klinsmann has spent most of his time in the United States with his family, except for March and June, when he was in charge of the A matches. Since his appointment, he hasn’t won a game with two draws and two losses, which has led to more criticism.

His mind is elsewhere than the Korean national team. He has been criticized for his irresponsible behavior, focusing on interviews about the Tottenham Hotspur junior’s transfer to Bayern Munich and Lionel Messi’s arrival in the United States.

In response to the bad publicity, the Korean Football Association reportedly organized a zoomed-in press conference with Klinsmann and a select group of domestic media.

‘3 hits, 4 on-base, 2 RBIs, 4 runs’ Lotte Yoon Dong-hee proved the possibility of a ‘lead-off’ for the giant army

Outfielder Yoon Dong-hee (20), a sophomore in the professional baseball Lotte Giants, has opened up his potential as a new leadoff hitter for the giants. Based on his excellent batting ability, running base ability, and defensive ability, Yun Dong-hee is steadily strengthening his position as a central player in his team by playing his role in his team.

Lotte won 15-4 in the 13th game of the season against SSG Landers held at Sajik Stadium in Busan on the 17th. Lotte swept all 3 home matches against SSG and ran 4 consecutive wins with a sweep win. Lotte continued its upward trend by winning its first sweep win against SSG since the founding of SSG (March 2021). Lotte has never won a sweep win since SSG was founded. Lotte won an emotional sweep in 5 years and 2 months since June 2018, when it was SK Wyverns, the predecessor of SSG.

Lotte rewrote the records for the most hits (20 hits) and the most points (15 points) in a team game this season in this game. Lotte had 5 multi-hit hitters including Jun-Woo Jeon (4 hits), Dong-Hee Yoon, Kang-Nam Yoo, Drum-Rum (3 hits), and Kwon-Soo Ahn (2 hits), and the batting line exploded and defeated SSG.

In the game that day, Yoon Dong-hee played a central role in the team’s victory with his constant performance. Yoon Dong-hee started as Lotte’s number one hitter and right fielder in the game that day and completed an amazing record of 3 hits in 5 at-bats, 2 RBIs, 4 runs and 1 walk. In particular, Yun Dong-hee filled all three of his hits with doubles, creating his first three doubles game in his professional debut.

In the first at-bat in the first inning, Yoon Dong-hee calmly picked out the ball from SSG starter Oh Won-seok and walked on base. Yoon Dong-hee became the main character of the team’s first score by stepping on the home plate when Jeon Jun-woo hit the fourth batter. In the second at-bat in the second inning, Yoon Dong-hee threw a ground ball in front of the third baseman.

Yoon Dong-hee did not stop. Yoon Dong-hee knocked out a double in the 4th inning and created a scoring opportunity for Lotte at once. Yoon Dong-hee pushed Oh Won-seok’s ball lightly and made a batted ball that landed inside the foul line on the right. Yoon Dong-hee scored the fourth run for the team by hitting the home again with Yoo Kang-nam’s hit.먹튀검증

In the 6th inning, Yoon Dong-hee created a scoring opportunity for his team and even scored. Yoon Dong-hee stepped on second base again with a hit that went to the side of the right fielder. When Jeon Jun-woo hit, Yoon Dong-hee scored again. In the 7th inning, Yoon Dong-hee also stepped on first base due to a defense error by SSG infielder.

Yoon Dong-hee became the protagonist of the RBI in the 8th inning. Yoon Dong-hee called team seniors Noh Jin-hyuk and Jung-hoon home with a double through left-center in the 8th inning.

Yoon Dong-hee has definitely established himself as Lotte’s central hitter this season. Lotte coach Larry Sutton highly praises Yoon Dong-hee’s batting ability and is appointing Yoon Dong-hee as a starting player.

Yoon Dong-hee recently improved his sense of hitting and raised his batting average for the season to 0.303 (83 hits in 274 at-bats) until the game on the 17th. If Yoon Dong-hee fills the required at-bats, it is expected that he will compete for first place in the individual team batting average with team seniors Ahn Chi-hong and Jeon Jun-woo, and junior Kim Min-seok.

‘Despite to restore honor’ Lim Do-heon, leaving for Iran, the final battleground for the 亞 championship

The men’s volleyball team led by coach Lim Do-heon seeks to restore honor at the Asian Championships.

The national team will depart for Urmia, Iran, the venue of the 2023 Asian Men’s Volleyball Championship, via Incheon International Airport on the 16th. The competition will be held from the 19th to the 26th.

A total of 14 players were named to the roster. Hwang Seung-bin (KB Insurance) and Hwang Taek-eui (Army Sports Corps) will lead the setter team, while Park Gyeong-min (Hyundai Capital) and Lee Sang-wook (Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance) will be responsible for the libero position. The middle blockers were Kim Gyu-min (Korean Air), Lee Sang-hyeon (Woori Card), and Kim Min-jae (Korean Air).

A total of five players will be outside heaters: Na Gyeong-bok (Ministry of Defense), Jeong Ji-seok (Korean Air), Jeong Han-yong (Korean Air), Lim Seong-jin (Korea Electric Power Corporation), and Jeon Kwang-in (Hyundai Capital). Heo Soo-bong (Hyundai Capital) and Lim Dong-hyuk (Korean Air) are in charge of the Apposite Spiker.

In the group stage of this tournament, the second place in the group advances to the round of 12 playoffs. Korea, which belongs to Group F, will face Bangladesh (August 19) and Pakistan (August 21) in turn.

The national team was frustrated at the threshold of the 2023 Asian Volleyball Confederation (AVC) Challenger Cup final held last month. The dream of advancing to the Volleyball Nations League (VNL) for the first time in six years was shattered by a complete defeat by Bahrain, ranked 77th in the world, in the semifinals.스포츠토토

Recently, the national team boldly excluded top setter Han Seon-seon (Korean Air) and veteran middle blocker Shin Young-seok (KEPCO), and embarked on a generational change. However, through the AVC Challenger Cup, he realized his lack of experience.

Although Han and Shin Young-seok were not called this time, a large number of experienced players joined. Instead of young players such as Kim Myeong-gwan, Park Jun-hyeok, Oh Jae-seong, Jo Jae-young, and Hwang Gyeong-min, Hwang Seung-bin, Na Gyeong-bok, Lee Sang-wook, Kim Gyu-min, and Jeon Kwang-in will join hands and feet.

The national team gathered at the Jincheon National Training Center in North Chungcheong Province from the middle of last month and began training in earnest for about four weeks. After all the preparations, we head to Urmia, Iran, the final battleground of the day.

Im Eun-woo (16) said, “I was very nervous and nervous because it was my first tournament.

Chelsea, who are serious about strengthening the midfield, completed the signing of Rabia for 98.7 billion won

Reports have emerged that Chelsea FC have completed the signing of Romeo Rabia.

The Athletic said on the 16th (Korean time), “Chelsea have agreed to sign Rabia with Southampton FC for up to £58 million.” The base transfer fee is £53 million, with a bonus of £5 million. Labia left only the medical test until he became a Chelsea player.스포츠토토

Rabia, who went through the youth teams of RSC Anderlecht and Manchester City, made his professional debut for Manchester City in the 2021-2022 season. He moved to Southampton last season, but as the team was relegated, he became a major recruiting target for English Premier League (EPL) teams this season.

In a situation where Liverpool FC and Chelsea competed for his scout, Chelsea became the winner. Previously, Chelsea had also won Liverpool and Moises Caisedo’s scout. A new EPL transfer fee record of 115 million pounds (approximately 195 billion won) occurred.

In the match for Kaisedo, he was able to sign because the player wanted Chelsea, but it is known that Labia also preferred to go to Chelsea.

“It was all for the first time” Kim Dae-eun’s strange and exciting first Taegeuk Mark

Heungkuk Life’s Kim Da-eun earned her first senior national team call-up this year. It was the moment she finally realized her dream of representing her country, and everything was new. From her first Taegeuk mark to moving into the Jincheon Athletes’ Village, long flights, international competitions, players across the net over two meters away, and the thrill of daring back row attacks, it was a series of fresh stimuli for Kim. For the second year in a row, Korean women’s volleyball suffered a 12-match losing streak in the VNL, but Kim’s success as an apojeet was a precious harvest of frustration. We talked to Kim about the unfamiliarity and excitement of being an international player.

On her first call-up to the national team
Kim’s first reaction: “Me?”

The Korean women’s national team, led by head coach Cesar Hernandez, has been in Jincheon since May to prepare for the FIVB Volleyball Nations League (VNL) 2023. It was the start of Cesar’s second national team season after last year. There were many new faces in the 16-player roster for the VNL.

Setter Kim Da-eun (Hyundai E&C), libero Shin Yeon-kyung (IBK), outside hitter Moon Ji-yoon, setter Kim Ji-won (GS Caltex), libero-turned-libero Moon Jung-won (Korea Expressway Corporation), and outside hitter Kim Mi-yeon (Heungkuk Life), all of whom were called up to the national team under Stefano Lavarini. In addition, the next-generation middle blocker quartet of Park Eun-jin and Jung Ho-young (both KGC Ginseng), Lee Da-hyun (Hyundai E&C), and Lee Ju-ah (Heungkuk Life) joined the national team at the same time. Setter Yeom Hye-sun (KGC Ginseng) and outside hitters Kang So-hwi (GS Caltex), Jeong Ji-yoon (Hyundai E&C), Park Jung-ah (Pepper Savings Bank) and Pyo Seung-joo (IBK) were also included. Kim Da-eun, born in 2001, is the youngest member of the national team with Kim Ji-won, Lee Da-hyun, Jeong Jeong-yoon and Jeong Ho-young.

Kim, who stands at 180 centimeters, was selected by Heungkuk Life with the sixth pick in the first round of the 2019 rookie draft after playing for Jungdae Secondary, Ilshin Girls’ Middle, and Ilshin Girls’ High. She plays outside hitter and outside hitter for the team. She has four seasons of experience in the V-League. In his last season, he played 35 games and 103 sets, scoring 186 points. It was her best season since her professional debut. She was paired with outside hitter Kim Yeon-kyung, and then-head coach Kwon Soon-chan believed in her potential. Unfortunately, she was unable to fully solidify her place in the starting lineup due to her receiving anxiety, and was alternated with Kim Mi-yeon.

After the 2022-2023 season, Kim was on vacation. During a meal, she received the news of her selection to the national team. “I was eating when I got a call to congratulate me. “At first, I was really surprised. I couldn’t believe it, like, ‘I made the team?’ It was already in the news, but I checked it later,” she says. My parents were excited,” he recalls. “I didn’t think I would make the team because there are so many good players. It was nice just to be on the list,” he adds.

Kim was surprised by the unexpected call-up, but it was definitely good news. He had played for the youth national team in high school five years ago. It was his first Taeguk mark. “I was on the national team when I was 18, but this is my first time on the adult national team. “When I played volleyball, I set goals one by one, and making the national team was one of them. After joining the professional team, my next goal was the national team, and it felt great to achieve it.”

First time in Jincheon, first long flight

Entering the Jincheon Athletes’ Village for the first time. Upon arrival, Kim had a strange feeling. “My first thought was, ‘I’m in the athletes’ village I’ve only heard about,'” he said. At the entrance of the athletes’ village, the words ‘Jincheon National Athletes’ Village’ are written in large letters. When I entered, that was the first thing that caught my eye,” he said, sharing a vivid memory of his first move. Most of all, Kim was surprised by the food at the athletes’ village. “The rice was really good. I like meat, and everything was delicious. There were a lot of different types. The desserts were also of good quality. I think I’ve gained weight since entering the athletes’ village,” he laughed.

The team trained for about a month in the athletes’ village, happy but busy. To acclimatize and train, the Korean team first traveled to Turkuye, where the first week of the VNL was held. After playing four games in Turku, the team traveled to Brazil for the second week. This was another challenge for Kim, who had never been on a long-haul flight before.

“I hadn’t been on an airplane for a long time. The furthest I’ve ever traveled was to Taiwan for a tournament with the youth national team.” “I was worried about flying for a long time, but it was a new world. I watched three or four movies on the way to Turkuye and still didn’t arrive. The flight from Turkuye to Brazil was even longer. It was just long. I watched five or six movies that I had prepared in advance, and I watched movies on the plane to pass the time. I didn’t sleep much on the plane. Even if I slept for a long time, I think it was only an hour,” she said, sharing the challenges of her first long flight. “You eat on the plane and sit in one place for a long time, so your body gets swollen. My calves were especially swollen. I even wore compression tights. I also felt my body stiffen. I saw other people getting up and stretching because they were having a hard time, and I noticed and stretched too,” she said.

The flight from South Korea to Turku is over 11 hours long. The journey from Turkiye to Brazil was even more difficult. He had to make a layover. She arrived in Brazil 26 hours after leaving Turkiye. The long flight wasn’t the only problem for the national team. It was also about jet lag. Any disruption in their circadian rhythms would have a huge impact on their performance. What they eat and how they digest their food also affects their condition. When the team arrived in Brazil, the temperatures were colder than expected. Even the veteran players found it difficult to manage their condition.

For Kim, the long flight was hard, but fortunately, jet lag and food were not a problem. His youth also helped. “The first two or three days in Turkuye, my eyes just opened at dawn, but I quickly got into a pattern. The food was good, even though I’m usually not a fan of flavored foods. The kaimak was good.” “In Brazil, except for breakfast, lunch and dinner were all beef and salad. I’m a salad kind of person, so I ate pretty well.”

Following the trip to Turkuye-Brazil, the team had 16 players for the Suwon series in Week 3 of the VNL. Rules dictated that the final 14-man roster had to be named each week. The 14-player roster for Week 1 excluded Kim Da-eun and Kim Ji-won. But Kim wasn’t discouraged. She was encouraged by her conversation with coach Cesar.

“I actually made the national team, and it was great just being with them in Turkuye. At first, when I was left off the roster for the first week in Turkuye, the coach apologized and said that being outside didn’t mean I couldn’t play. He told me to watch the game while thinking about the height of the opponent, etc. I didn’t feel bad,” he said calmly.

Only her name was missing from the 14-player roster, but she trained the same and waited for the next time. For Kim Dae-eun, the opportunity came. Setter Kim Dae-in and libero Shin Yeon-kyung were removed from the roster in Week 2 due to abdominal and back injuries, respectively. Kim Da-eun and Kim Ji-won joined the 14-player roster. Kim started the first match of Week 2 against Brazil and scored 11 points. It was an impressive debut for Kim, who earned her first call-up to the senior national team. “I was excited to be included in the 14-player roster for Week 2,” said Kim. I was left off the roster in Turku, but we trained the same, had video meetings, and prepared together.” “Thinking back to the Brazil game, it was good just to be in that tournament, that game, wearing the flag. I wasn’t really nervous before Brazil. I tried not to put any pressure on myself. I just tried to have fun, and I think it worked out well,” he said with a straight face. It was a VNL debut she will never forget.

Kim played all eight matches in Weeks 2 and 3, starting against Brazil. She totaled 83 points, including six serves and three blocks. She scored 10.38 points per game. Her attack success rate was 35%. Meanwhile, the Korean Women’s National Team has struggled without Apojit. In the V-League, the position of outside hitter is reserved for foreign players, leaving no room for Korean players to step in. Until the Tokyo Olympics, Kim Hee-jin (IBK) filled the role, but after he went down with an injury, the national team was left without a professional apogee. As an alternative, the team has been using a rotating attack with three outside hitters like Japan and Thailand.

In Week 3 of last year’s VNL, Lee Han-bi (Pepper Savings Bank) was inserted as an outside hitter and showed off his tight defense and cohesive play. However, his height limitations were obvious. In this year’s VNL, Kim Da-eun has taken over the outside hitter position. The chemistry between setter Kim Dain and Kim Da-eun was stable. After the defense, the offense became more and more cogent in the counterattack. After actively utilizing the middle blocker to get past the opponent’s blocking, they had fun with pipe attacks where Kim would try to spike from behind. “Dain is someone who is really serious about volleyball. She watches a lot of volleyball videos. I try to figure out their style and give them the ball accordingly. I like to attack low and fast. I told her to come in quickly because that’s how I’m going to serve the ball. During the VNL, she shared some videos of other teams attacking from behind and said, ‘Let’s try this. They were videos of Thailand and Japan. My sister helped me a lot, and I think we got better and better at breathing together,” she said, thanking Kim Dae-in for her consistent coordination.

“We talked a lot about height in training,” Kim said. I felt that the back attack was working well from the beginning of training. Dain’s passes were good,” she said. “There are also moments that are exciting when I watch the video again now. I remember the scene in China when we scored a rebound and the fans cheered. In the V-League, fans are assigned a team to support, but in the national team games, I felt that the fans were all in unison and cheering. I felt a sense of responsibility to play for the national team,” she said.메이저사이트

Kim also worked on breaking through her opponent’s high blocking. In the early days of the VNL, she was often criticized by coach Cesar. “Why are you looking at the net and hitting it?” he would say during timeouts. As she gained more experience, she slowly began to see things differently. “When I’m attacking, I like to hit it out or twist it. I think if the other team’s blocking is high, they are more likely to see my finger and hit it. I can see the blocking and hit it easily.” “At first, I was blocked or bound because I was looking into the court. My coach told me to look away. For example, ‘Look at the letter ‘ga’ on the opposite ceiling and hit it,’ and he told me to look far away from the beginning to the end. Also, even if I missed, he told me to try rather than get blocked, so I felt free to push hard and attack,” she said, sharing her know-how to deal with high blocking.

South Korea was ranked 14th in the world thanks to its fourth-place finish at the Tokyo Olympics. However, within two years, they had fallen to 35th place. It was a steep drop that no one expected. After the Tokyo Olympics, veterans such as Kim Yeon-kyung, Kim Soo-ji, and Yang Hyo-jin retired, resulting in a significant drop in strength. Against this backdrop, the biggest gain for VNL this year was the discovery of a new ace, Kim Da-eun. Of course, the team tried, and the process improved. However, they were unable to win important results. They had to be happy with just one set. The mood in the team was not good.

“As we kept losing, the players’ confidence was decreasing,” said Kim. We had a group meeting with the coach, Yumi (Han), and Yeon-kyung (Kim), and I told them that it’s not over, there’s still a match, so it’s harder if you’re down. We hadn’t had a full day off, so we took a day to rest and regroup, and the atmosphere was fine,” Kim said, discussing the psychological pressure the team had to deal with during the losing streak and the team atmosphere.

Kim Da-eun also felt the reality of Korean women’s volleyball on the international stage: “We realized that we lacked a lot in height. We were playing against six foreign players from the V-League in an international tournament. “Of course, we didn’t bring home the victory, but we played well, scored points and won sets, so I thought there was definitely hope,” he said. “Especially in the third week, I felt it. “Especially in the third week, I felt it, and I thought, ‘It’s not impossible for us,'” she said encouragingly.

Kim Da-eun himself is disappointed. “We focused on growth, but we didn’t win,” he says. After the VNL, I felt like I wanted to play the games I could have,” he said. “We still haven’t won a game. However, I believe that if we keep up this pace, good things will come. The players won’t give up and will keep trying. I hope the fans will watch and recognize that.”

Kim Da-eun is currently caught between an apogee and an outside heater. Before her, Jung Jeong-yoon was the same way. After playing the role of an outside hitter for the national team, she was asked to play outside hitter for her home team, where she had to defend the reception. There was a time when she was brought to tears by an opponent’s targeted serve. She persevered and won the outside hitter position on the national team. Kim Da-eun is still struggling with her reception. She played as an opposite hitter for the national team, but foreign player Yelena Mrazenovic was the one who got the job. Kim will most likely be used as an outside hitter. Head coach Marcello Abondanza has hinted at using her as a receiving light (outside hitter).

Kim also emphasized receiving. He said, “Receiving is the answer to survive in the team. I know that Yelena is going to be in the apogee, so I need to be able to receive well to get into a spot. I’m not there yet, and when I make a mistake, I get a little confused, but I’m trying to get myself together quickly.”

On offense, on the other hand, her confidence has grown. “I’ve been attacking a lot,” Kim said. If something doesn’t work out, I think about the next attack and try to overcome it easily,” she said, adding, “I try not to feel pressure, whether it’s on the national team or in my own team. Pressure is a poison. I only think about how I can help the team.”

Jin Jong-oh and Lee Dae-hoon dismissed as IOC Athletes Commission members

The challenge of Chuncheon’s “shooting emperor” Jin Jong-oh (44), co-chairman of the Gangwon Winter Youth Olympic Games 2024, and “Taekwondo star” Lee Dae-hoon (31), a World Taekwondo Federation (WT) athlete member from Hwacheon, to become an IOC Athletes Commissioner, unfortunately failed.

The Korean Sports Association held the second senior meeting at the Intercontinental COEX in Gangnam-gu, Seoul on the 14th and announced that it recommended Park In-bi, the ‘Empress of Golf’, as a domestic candidate to run for the new IOC Athletes Commission election to be held during the Paris Olympics next year.먹튀검증

The Sports Association said, “Park In-bi received the highest score unanimously in the evaluation committee.”

On the 16th and 17th, the Korea Sports Association Athletes Committee still has to go through the process of voting, but Park In-bi has been virtually confirmed as a Korean candidate for the IOC Athletes Commission. She is said to have won the overwhelming first place in competition with Park In-bi, Jin Jong-oh, Lee Dae-hoon, Kim Yeon-kyung (volleyball), and Kim So-young (badminton).

During the 2016 Rio Olympics, Jin Jong-oh, who challenged to become an IOC Athletes Commissioner but was pushed back by the current IOC Athletes Commissioner Seung-Min Yoo, suffered a second death. As a result, the first ever election of an IOC member from Gangwon promised the following.
