Kim Yeon-kyung, who joined the national team as an advisor to the national team rather than a player, showed pride in the Taegeuk mark.
The women’s volleyball team started open training on the 16th at the Jincheon National Athlete’s Village in Chungcheongbuk-do.
Kim Yeon-kyung, who announced her retirement after the 2022 Tokyo Olympics, was also present in the training that day. She put down the Taegeuk mark after the Olympics, but Kim Yeon-kyung was appointed as an advisor, and she serves as an advisor and support for the overall national volleyball team, such as mentoring national players and supporting work for coaches and support personnel.
She will also partly participate in the training and dispatch schedule of the women’s volleyball national team with the help of her team, Heungkuk Life Insurance.
“It feels new,” said Kim Yeon-kyung, who entered her village as a non-athlete. It’s nice to see her wearing clothes with the Taegeukgi,” she said.
As for her role as an advisor, she said, “It helps a lot in communication between domestic and foreign staff. She also talks a lot about how to get better on the international stage and the direction,” she explained.
In addition to Kim Yeon-kyung, the national team returned the Taegeuk mark along with Kim Su-ji and Yang Hyo-jin. As a result, many young players have been added to the national team.
Regarding this, Kim Yeon-kyung said, “If you look at the composition of the members, there are a lot of young players. As a result, her energy improved, she says. She is preparing hard to repay her with better grades this year than last year.”메이저놀이터
He said, “Rather than wanting to run instead, I’m thinking about how to help more. I think we need to support and help the players so that they can show their best performance.”
In addition, he prayed for the success of his juniors at the upcoming Hangzhou Asian Games.
Kim Yeon-kyung said, “The Asian Games are an event that all citizens are interested in. It is not an annual event, so the players have to think differently.”
