‘The first button towards the Paris Olympics’ Césarho seeks to restore honor at VNL

Korean women’s volleyball seeks to restore its reputation on the international stage.

The national team, led by coach Cesar Gonzalez, will face off against the host country, Turkiye, in the first round of the 2023 International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) Volleyball Nations League (VNL), which will kick off in Turkiye Antalya at 2 am on the 1st of next month. After the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, the national team, where many national players such as Kim Yeon-kyung (Heungkuk Life Insurance) and Yang Hyo-jin (Hyundai E&C) retired, recorded all 12 losses in this competition last year, when they participated after a generational change. A lethargic performance that did not even score a single point continued.

The national team roster has not changed much, but ‘Legend’ Kim Yeon-kyung joined the national team as an advisor (advisor), and national team senior Han Yu-mi, who served as a commentator, joined as a coaching staff.

Korean women’s volleyball, which has a life and death to advance to the 2024 Paris Olympics, will pass important schedules, starting with this VNL, the Asian Championships held in September, the Paris Olympics qualifiers, and the Hangzhou Asian Games. In order to enter the 12 countries that have qualified for the Paris Olympics, it is best to pass the preliminary rounds, but it is practically difficult because there are too many strong teams.

In order for Korean women’s volleyball, which is currently ranked 23rd, to stand in the Olympics, it must win as many games as possible in three competitions, excluding the Asian Games, where ranking points determine the world ranking. Asian Games medals cannot be given up.안전놀이터

To this end, after digesting the Asian Championships (September 2-10) held in Thailand, the national team flew to Poland to play in the Olympic qualifiers (September 16-24) and then moved to Hangzhou again to hold the Asian Games (September 28-October). The forced march continues until the 7th.

The goal set by the national team in the VNL is at least three wins. Korea will face Turkiye, Canada (June 2), USA (June 3) and Thailand (June 4) in the first week. Afterwards, it moved to Brasilia, Brazil, and clashed with Brazil (June 15), Japan (June 16), Croatia (June 17), and Germany (June 19), and returned to Suwon, Korea, to Bulgaria (June 27). ), the Dominican Republic (June 29), China (July 1) and Poland (July 2).
