South Korea’s men’s volleyball (27th in the world) finished seventh in the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games. It’s the worst performance ever.
The men’s volleyball team, led by head coach Lim Do-hun, beat Indonesia (57th) with a set score of 3-2 (29-27, 19-25, 25-19, 21-25, 15-8) in the seventh-place match held at the China Gyeongbang Sports Center Gymnasium in Saoxing, Zhejiang Province, China on the 26th.
It was a poor game to the end. The result was the worst performance ever.
It wasn’t a good start. On the 20th, he suffered a shock loss of 2-3 set scores to India, ranked 73rd in the world. It was a come-from-behind defeat, too. It beat Cambodia 3-0 a day later on the 21st. However, Cambodia was an amateur-level team that did not count the world rankings.
He reached the round of 12 but was completely defeated by Pakistan (51st) 0-3. As a result, the Korean national team was humiliated to be eliminated even before the official opening ceremony of the tournament was held on the 23rd.
And it led to a ranking match. They beat Bahrain 3-1 in the 7th-12th place match, and Thailand 3-1 in the 7th-10th place match. And on the same day, they confirmed seventh place with a 3-2 new victory over Indonesia.
As can be seen from the score, Korea did not overwhelm even in the ranking match. In particular, it was a game that could almost lose the match against Indonesia. It was a series of graduations.
The tournament will remain a disaster in Hangzhou in Korean volleyball.
She tried for the first time in 17 years since the 2006 Doha Games, but never got close to a medal.
From the 1966 Bangkok Games to the 2018 Jakarta and Palembang Games, he was on the podium for 14 consecutive tournaments, but he returned after 61 years of no medal humiliation.
Lim Do-heon-ho’ is now on a plane to Korea. The national team players will return to their respective teams and start preparing for the V-League for the 2023-24 season. This season’s V-League will open on October 14. 토토
