Men’s professional volleyball Korean Air was enticed into the ‘first round’ ahead of the opening of the 2022-23 season. After the start of the season, Korean Air performed in line with expectations.
I played the match like a ‘defending champion’. The fact that the difference between the main and backup power is not large compared to other teams was also cited as a strength. However, Korean Air, which had been going well, is somewhat slowing down in 2023.
On the 2nd, in the home game against KEPCO held at Gyeyang Gymnasium in Incheon, a home, they lost with a set score of 1-3. He started off lightly by winning the first set, but later bowed his head as he gave up three sets.
I have lost 4 times since January. In addition, it was the first time since the opening of this season that the KEPCO match was reversed, and it suffered two consecutive losses. Korean Air coach Tommy Tillikainen said, “The opponent played a better game 스포츠토토. That’s why I think KEPCO won. To put it simply, today (2nd) is our day.” I don’t think it was, in the first set, all aspects such as serve, attack, and defense were good, but from the second set, the opponent also played well.”
However, coach Tillikainen has recorded 4 losses since January, and said, “I don’t really care” about the situation where he suffered his first consecutive loss of the season, including a come-from-behind loss that day. I am writing,” he said. “There are good days and there are bad days,” he added.
Regarding the reason for replacing Kwak Seung-seok with Jeong Han-yong in the middle of the 3rd set 3-6, he explained, “I faced a situation where I had to change inevitably because I had a calf problem.”
Kwak Seung-seok only played until the 3rd set and scored 8 points, while Jung Han-yong started in the 4th set and scored 9 points.
There is another reason for Korean Air’s come-from-behind defeat. Director Tillikainen didn’t mention it, but Bumsil caught his ankle. Korean Air recorded 23 rooms until the 3rd set that day, but KEPCO had only 9 rooms until that set. The final record for the room was 26 for Korean Air and 14 for KEPCO.
