Hangzhou AG No Medal Shame
The men’s and women’s volleyball team’s head coach will be replaced due to poor performance at the Hangzhou Asian Games.
The Korea Volleyball Association issued an apology in the name of its chairman Oh Han-nam on the 8th. The apology included the resignation of the men’s national team coach Lim Do-hun and the women’s national team coach Cesar, as well as the resignation of the chairman of the men’s and women’s performance improvement committee.
The association said, “The men’s national team coach Lim Do-heon’s term ended after the Hangzhou Asian Games. Cesar, the coach of the women’s national team, explained, “We mutually agreed to terminate the contract as it has become virtually difficult to participate in the 2024.
The men’s and women’s volleyball returned without a medal at the Hangzhou Asian Games.
Men’s volleyball was eliminated in the round of 12 after losing to India and Pakistan. He was eliminated from the medal race early before the opening ceremony was held. The medal streak of 14 consecutive events from the 1966 Bangkok Games has also ended. It was the first no-medal medal in 61 years.
Women’s volleyball was also sluggish. He advanced to the semifinals at the Tokyo Olympics two years ago, but fell after the retirement of Kim Yeon-kyung and Yang Hyo-jin. Since Cesar’s appointment, he has lost all 12 games of the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) Volleyball Nations League and lost seven consecutive Olympic qualifiers in Paris. It failed to reach the semifinals even in Hangzhou.
The association said, “We will do our best to select the best leader to improve the national team’s performance. In addition, we will spare no support so that players can show their best performance,” he stressed. 토토사이트
