The South Korean men’s volleyball team has been eliminated in the round of 12 at the Hangzhou Asian Games.

South Korea’s Kim Min-jae falls on the court after a failed defence during the men’s volleyball round of 16 tournament match between South Korea and Pakistan at China Textile City Sports Center in Shaoxing, China, on Sept. 22.
South Korea, ranked 27th in the world, lost 0-3 (19-25, 22-25, 21-25) against Pakistan, ranked 51st, in the men’s volleyball quarterfinals on Sept. 22 in Shaoxing, Zhejiang province, China. They dropped the match in 1 hour and 23 minutes in a tightly contested match. Instead of competing for a medal, the team was relegated to the 7th-12th place match. Earlier in the day, Korea’s 2-3 shock loss to 73rd-ranked India in the first match of Group C was a sobering reminder of their current status as they were knocked out of the tournament after three games.
Against Pakistan, a team that has been labeled as ‘underdogs’, Korea was at a disadvantage the entire time. After dropping the first set in 26 minutes, South Korea substituted setter Hwang Taek-eui and outside hitter Jeong Ji-seok, 온라인카지노 but it didn’t change the mood. The offense was dull and the defense was sloppy. In the third set, they were overwhelmed at the top of the court, with their first block of the night. They were outnumbered in both attack points (34-45) and blocks (5-9). Bumseols were also painful. Whenever they were in a good mood, they would make their own mistakes. It was unfortunate that they couldn’t capitalize on the opportunity to tie the game at 21-22 in the second set.
For Korea, opposite spiker Heo Su-bong (11 points) was the only other player in double figures. Pakistan was led by wing spiker Usman Fariad (20 points) and attacking spiker Khan Murad (19 points). Korea struggled to contain the 6-foot-5 Murad.
South Korea’s head coach Lim Do-heon rubs his face after losing the first set during the men’s volleyball quarterfinal tournament match between South Korea and Pakistan at China Textile City Sports Center in Shaoxing, China, on Sept. 22.
After the match, South Korean head coach Lim Do-heon said, “I don’t have anything to say. This is how good we are at international competitions. I think we need to prepare a lot in the future, including basic defense.” Captain Hwang Taek-ui (setter) said, “The setters couldn’t find a way to solve the game. I felt that we lacked a lot.”
Outside hitters Jeon Jeong-seok and Jeon Kwang-in suffered injuries during the tournament, but the team was unable to find a suitable replacement. After falling short of expectations at the Asia Challenge Cup, where they finished third, and the Asian Championships, where they finished fifth, Korea brought in veteran setter Han as a firefighter ahead of the tournament, but it didn’t make much of a difference. The team failed to show promise in the ‘generation change’, let alone in performance. The South Koreans, who were aiming for their first gold medal in 17 years since Doha 2006, came away with their most disastrous performance to date, leaving them with a lot of work to do. 카지노사이트존
