How much can we reap from the first international competition this time? This is the second VNL since Kim Yeon-kyung was missing.
On the 16th, the women’s volleyball team unveiled a press conference and training site ahead of the ‘2023 International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) Volleyball Nations League (VNL)’ at Jincheon National Training Center in Chungbuk.
The 2023 VNL will be held from the 30th to the 16th of July. Week 1 matches (May 30-June 4) will be held in Turkiye and Week 2 matches (June 13-18) will be held in Brazil. The last three weeks (June 27-July 2) will be held at Chilbo Gymnasium in Seosuwon, Korea.
Starting this year, Kim Yeon-kyung will attend as an advisor and Han Yu-mi will lead the team as a new coach.
Currently, coach Cesar Hernandez of the women’s national volleyball team joins directly from Turkiye without entering the country due to the league schedule of her team, Vakif Bank SK (Turkiye). Therefore, the press conference on this day was centered around coach Han Yu-mi and advisor Kim Yeon-kyung.
One of the first coaches to be interviewed said about Cesar’s absence, “We are still communicating (with the coach), and since last week we have been practicing our own games. “I’m trying to improve accuracy by reflecting that,” he said.
He, who had had the path of a leader in mind from before, said, “I was excited and scared when I was first appointed (coach).” He gives a lot of advice on world trends and how to train foreign coaches.”
South Korea declared a generational change from 2022 after veterans such as Kim Yeon-kyung, Kim Su-ji, and Yang Hyo-jin retired from the national team. However, in last year’s VNL and World Championships, he had only one win in total, and in particular, in the VNL, he suffered all defeats (three sets in total).
Regarding this, a coach said, “I didn’t join last year, so I don’t know the internal training situation at the time, but the players and staff who were there last year said that they were better prepared than last year.” Even if I don’t have to, I know how to work hard,” he said.
Since Cesar has not joined yet,토토사이트 the details of the strategy and tactics are unknown. He is conducting training based in part on the experiences of the players with the coach last year. A coach said, “In the case of foreign countries, height and power are so good. We have to endure this much, and we continue to talk about ball control.” I am doing a lot,” he said.
In order not to burden the team, VNL’s performance and specific goals are not set separately. However, one coach said, “Personally, I would like to win one win every week.”
As for the strengths of the current national team as a coach, he said, “In the past, when I was active, I pursued organization and defense, but now my height has improved, so the serve has become my strength. told
