I did it without regret 4th in volleyball Turkey 3-2 to advance to the semifinals
Korean women’s volleyball player Kim Yeon-kyung (33), who has been active in volleyball, has done it again. The strong team crossed Turkey and headed for the semifinals. Now, I’m going to challenge for the medal.
South Korea beat Turkey in the quarterfinals of women’s volleyball at the Tokyo Olympics in Ariake Arena on the 4th with a set score of 3-2 (17-25,25-17,28-26,18-25,15-13). Ace Kim Yeon-kyung led the team with 28 points that he scored whenever he was important.
Korean women’s volleyball is the best record of winning a bronze medal at the 1976 Montreal Olympics. South Korea, led by Kim Yeon-kyung, ranked fourth at the 2012 London Olympics and fifth at the 2016 Brazil Olympics.
He will challenge his best performance ever in Tokyo. The winner of the quarterfinals between Brazil and the ROC (Russia), which will take place at 9:30 p.m. today (4th), will play in the semifinals on the 6th.
Turkey is a volleyball powerhouse with the best women’s league in the world. He ranked third in Group B (3 wins and 2 losses) and reached the knockout stage. He ranked fourth in the world after the U.S., Brazil, and China, and Korea, which ranked 13th in objective history. It was seven wins and two losses in history with South Korea.
Korea had a hard time overcoming Turkey’s height. It was not able to penetrate “tall forest” such as 2m Kubra Kalis Khan and 1m97 Ebrar Karakult. At the crucial moment, he was blocked by blocking and gave up the first set 17-25.
However, it was not Korea that would collapse like this. He showed concentration from the second set. Park Jung-ah, Yeom Hye-sun, and Kim Yeon-kyung and Kim Hee-jin led the team by 19 to 9 points. In particular, it was meaningful to see Kim Yeon-kyung blocking her best friend Eda Erdem’s attack. I brought two sets of 25-17.
In the third set, Turkey made more mistakes, leading 1-5. If Korea had Kim Yeon-kyung, Turkey had captain Eda Erdem. Eddem’s success in the attack turned Turkey 16-17. The last-minute deuce situation continued. He exchanged scores from 24-24 to 26-26. Turkey’s touchnet took a set-score opportunity. And the spike of Park Jung-ah, a strong heart. He connected with a touchout and finished 28-26.
South Korea gave up four sets at 18-25 to reach the brink of Turkey, but South Korea showed concentration.
He continued the seesaw game in the fifth set. Turkey’s new face, Tugba Senoglu, allowed a 5-7 lead in consecutive attacks before following 7-7. Park Eun-jin’s sharp three serve brought victory at 10-10. The receiver shook and scored three points. In the end, it was Korea that reached 15 points first. 15-13 game over.
South Korea, which defeated Turkey, the world’s fourth-largest player, hugged each other and shed tears of emotion.
South Korea has tried to become a “one team” at the Olympics, amid confusion over Lee Jae-young and Lee Da-young’s academic violence. Kim Yeon-kyung was the center of the team.
“Let’s do it,” Kim said when she was in crisis with a set score of 1-2 in a match against Dominican Republic. Let’s do it. Don’t regret it.” He comforted the team and eventually won from behind. It was a watershed scene that made it to the quarterfinals.
Kim Yeon-kyung’s “Last Dance” is not over. South Korea, which has become a one-team team, is creating a great match that will not be regretted with its organizational prowess and determination. There will be many other great scenes in the semifinals. If he wins on the 6th, he will secure a silver medal.
