Asian Games, ‘Back Pain’ Jeong Ji-seok

[Asian Games] ‘Back Pain’ Jeong Ji-seok “Watching the Loss in the Warm-up Zone… It was so Painful”




Even while the Korean men's volleyball team was in a close game with India, Jeong Ji-seok (28, Korean Air) stayed in the warm-up zone.

The absence of outside hitter Jeong Ji-seok, who excels in both offense and defense, was one of the factors behind the 'Hangzhou shock loss'. 카지노사이트킹

Korea, ranked 27th in the world, defeated India, ranked 73rd, with a set score of 2-3 (27-25 27-29 22-25 25-20) in the first match of the men's Group C qualifier for the 19th Hangzhou Asian Games held at the Linping Sports Center in Hangzhou, China on the 20th. lost 15-17).

Korea, which was only conscious of 'existing powers' such as Japan (5th), Iran (11th), Qatar (17th), and China (29th), was caught off guard by India, which it considered to be one step below.

It has been 11 years since the 2012 Asian Volleyball Federation Cup that Korean men's volleyball lost to India.

This is such a shocking result.

The shock that Jeong Ji-seok received was also great.

Jeong Ji-seok, whom we met after the game, said, “I am not in a normal physical condition due to back pain,” and added, “I prepared for the game in the warm-up zone.”

National team coach Lim Do-heon was concerned that Jeong Ji-seok's injury would worsen, so he did not use him even in moments of crisis.

Losing my team hurt more than my back pain.

Jeong Ji-seok said, “In international competitions, I think more about the team than the individual.

But today I was the only one who couldn’t play.

He confessed, "It's even more difficult and painful when the team loses when you can't play."

He said, "Seniors (in the same position) Na Kyung-bok (31 points, Ministry of National Defense) and Jeon Gwang-in (22 points, Hyundai Capital) played hard and did well."

I was so angry at myself because I was the only one in the warm-up zone while everyone else was working so hard.

Still, he expressed his regret, saying, "I suppressed that feeling and cheered with a bright voice, but unfortunately we lost."

Although they suffered a shocking loss to India, Korea will advance to the round of 12 by finishing second in Group C if they beat Cambodia, which is at an "amateur level," on the 21st.

In order for the loss against India to not be remembered as a 'disaster', a dramatic rebound is needed.

Jeong Ji-seok also expressed his will to stand on the court again.

Ji-seok Jeong said, "Now I have to think about the national team more than my body."

He said, “I will do my best to be able to participate in the remaining games.”
