‘Captain Park’ Park Jung-ah “The coach is absent? Communication is good and the coach is there ‘OK'”

 After the season ended, he joined the national team without a break. Farming to build VNL, Asian Games, and 2024 Paris Olympic qualifiers is tight. The captain’s shoulders are heavy, but he must be strong. 

On the 16th, the women’s volleyball team unveiled the training site ahead of the ‘2023 International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) Volleyball Nations League (VNL)’ at Jincheon National Training Center in Chungbuk. 

The 2023 VNL will be held from the 30th to the 16th of July. Week 1 matches (May 30-June 4) will be held in Turkiye and Week 2 matches (June 13-18) will be held in Brazil. The last three weeks (June 27-July 2) will be held at Chilbo Gymnasium in Seosuwon, Korea.

Starting this year, Kim Yeon-kyung will attend as an advisor and Han Yu-mi will lead the team as a new coach.

Currently, coach Cesar Hernandez of the women’s national volleyball team will join her team, Vakif Bank SK (Turkiye), directly from Turkiye without entering the country due to the league schedule. Therefore, the press conference on this day was centered around coach Han Yu-mi and advisor Kim Yeon-kyung. As the representative player, captain Park Jeong-ah stepped up.

Standing in front of the camera on this day, Park Jung-ah first spoke about her physical condition. He said, “Personally, I am grateful that the coach said well about the parts (senses, etc.) that fell off after taking a break,” he said. 

It is realistically difficult to dramatically improve performance compared to last year. The barriers on the international stage are high, and the national team, which lacks the world’s best striker Kim Yeon-kyung, must build up its performance step by step from the beginning. 안전놀이터

Regarding this, Park Jung-ah said, “There are many important matches this year, so it’s good to do well from the start, but the season has just ended and my body is being built right now, so I’ll work hard and show you a better image.” 

However, starting this year, Kim Yeon-kyung rejoins the team with the Taegeuk mark as an advisor. Park Jung-ah said, “(Kim Yeon-kyung) sister hits the ball and she knows a lot about foreign players that we don’t know. ‘What kind of player is good? , which players are good at,” he said. 

Due to coach Cesar’s league schedule, he could not join in Korea, but Park Jung-ah said, “There is no problem.” He said, “I can’t give direct instructions, but I’m in good contact, and coach Han Yu-mi and (Kim) Yeon-kyung are there, so the coaching staff are well prepared, so there’s no particular difficulty.” 

Finally, he bowed his head to the watching Korean fans, saying, “I showed a bad side last year, but I will work harder to improve and improve every day.”
