Korean volleyball is going to restore its honor with the men’s national team.먹튀검증

The men’s volleyball team, led by coach Lim Do-heon, will compete in the 2023 Asian Volleyball Confederation (AVC) Challenger Men’s Championship held in Taipei, Taiwan from the 8th to the 15th.

The AVC Challenger competition is a competition where the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) world ranking points are given. Korea’s ultimate goal is to win this competition, participate in the 2023 FIVB Challenger competition, and win the right to participate in the 2024 Volleyball Nations League (VNL).

As the Korean volleyball team has been humiliated by the recent 12-game losing streak in the 2023 VNL, the Korean volleyball team is looking forward to the performance of the men’s national team.

The men’s national team, which had not achieved significant results in international competitions over the past few years, held the FIVB Challenger tournament in Seoul last year, but unfortunately failed to win the VNL berth as they lost 0-3 in the semifinal against Turkiye.

Will the newly rejuvenated national team succeed in changing generations?

The Korea Volleyball Association last May setters Hwang Taek-eui and Kim Myeong-gwan, libero Park Gyeong-min and Oh Jae-seong, outside heater Jeong Ji-seok, Na Gyeong-bok, Hwang Kyung-min, Lim Seong-jin, Kim Ji-han, Jeong Han-yong, apositive strikers Heo Subong and Lim Dong-hyuk, middle blockers Kim Gyu-min, Park Jun-hyuk, Lee Sang-hyun, 17 players, including Kim Jun-woo and Kim Min-jae, were selected for the national team.

This is the first real match of the men’s national team, which has embarked on a generational shift by boldly selecting young players, excluding veterans such as Han, Kwak Seung-seok, and Shin Young-seok, who have led the national team.

It is also a stage to prepare for the Hangzhou Asian Games to be held this fall. The men’s national team won gold medals in Busan in 2002 and Doha in 2006, but only bronze medals in 2010 and 2014, and silver medals in 2018.

In the long term, he needs to raise his world ranking, which has fallen to 34th. If the men’s national team, which failed to qualify for the 2024 Paris Olympics, aims for the 2028 LA Olympics, it must be in the top 24 to qualify for the preliminary round.

This is also the reason why coach Lim Do-heon carried out a generational change with strong determination to help young players gain experience in international competitions.

Lim Do-heon-ho’s first opponents were Thailand and Saudi Arabia

In this AVC Challenger, which desperately needs to win for various reasons, 17 countries, including the host country Taiwan, will participate. Korea will play the group stage in Group B with Thailand (8th) and Saudi Arabia (9th). If you finish in the top 2, you can advance to the tournament.

Currently playing in the VNL, China, Japan and Iran do not participate. Thanks to that, Korea is considered as a favorite for the championship with Taiwan, Australia, and Bahrain.

However, as the skills of Southeast Asian countries such as Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan, which have excellent physique conditions, and Thailand and Indonesia, which show off fast and organized volleyball, are also rapidly growing, Korea needs to prepare thoroughly. In particular, Korea has the pain of losing to Thailand in last year’s AVC Challenger.

Attention is focusing on whether men’s volleyball, which needs a twist, will catch both rabbits: an imminent victory and a successful generational change in this competition.
