We call Kim Yeon-kyung (35) the ‘Volleyball Empress’ and say she is the best in the world. In her heyday, Kim Yeon-kyung was evaluated overseas as the ‘world’s best complete striker’.
She has become a 35-year-old veteran, and she returns to V. Li, but in the first half, she ranks first in both “attack efficiency” and “attack success rate”, and she still shows off her presence. But the reason she calls her the best isn’t just because she’s good at volleyball.
At the last Tokyo Olympics, Kim Yeon-kyung led the women’s volleyball team and led the semifinal myth. She not only scored goals in critical moments, but also sharpened the mentality of her teammates with skillful play that changed the atmosphere at the right moment when her team was faltering.
She gently comforted juniors who made mistakes and instilled confidence in them, and stimulated juniors who were about to give up with straightforward and honest words, arousing their fighting spirit. Her players trusted and followed her Kim Yeon-kyung, and her team power improved with her Kim Yeon-kyung. Seeing her leadership, the foreign media at the time praised her as ‘the Messi of volleyball’ and ‘the most outstanding player in history’.
Such Kim Yeon-kyung is protecting her Heungkuk Life, which is currently shaking. Heungkuk Life Insurance announced the resignation of director Kwon Soon-chan and Danjeong Kim Yeo-il on the 5th. It was practically rigid. Intervention from the top of the group was a problem, but Shin Yong-jun, the new general manager, explained that the club did not intervene in the selection of players. However, it was revealed that it was a false explanation, saying that Kim Yeon-kyung and Kim Hae-ran completely refuted the words of the new general manager Shin Yong-jun, saying, “It is true that there has been talk about the appointment of players.” 안전놀이터
In times of crisis, members should unite with sincerity, but the club only increased the problem with false explanations. The trust between players and clubs has been broken.
Although the trust with the club has been broken, Kim Yeon-kyung is leading the team by managing the agitated juniors well. Heungkuk Life Insurance won with a set score of 3-1 (25-23, 30-28, 23-25, 26-24) in an away game against IBK Industrial Bank held at the Hwaseong General Gyeonggi Town Indoor Gymnasium in Gyeonggi-do on the 8th. Kim Yeon-kyung was absent due to enteritis, but led the players off the court and achieved 4 consecutive victories.
