Incheon Samsan World Gymnasium on February 16th, when the match between Heungkuk Life Insurance and Pepper Savings Bank was held. At that time, Heungkuk Life Insurance won 3-0 and jumped to the sole lead.
The hero of this day’s game is Kim Yeon-kyung (35), the ‘Volleyball Empress’. Kim Yeon-kyung reaffirmed her top-tier skills with her 63.33% attack success rate, as well as 19 points, the most in her team.
However, after the game on this day, Kim Yeon-kyung, who was interviewed by a distinguished player, made a ‘surprising confession’ to a question related to the rumor of retirement, saying, “It is a lie if you do not intend to retire.” Kim Yeon-kyung said, “I’m already 36 years old. She’s been a volleyball player for a long time.” It is judged that the best picture is to leave the court without any regrets while at the top, not to retire as if pushed to the back due to decline in skills or the club’s urging.
Of course, Kim Yeon-kyung has not yet officially announced her retirement. However, if he leaves the court at the end of this season, the 3rd game of the Dodram 2022-2023 V-League Women’s Division Championship held at the Gimcheon Indoor Gymnasium on the 2nd may remain as the last game of his life.
Kim Yeon-kyung, the first-class contributor who led Heungkuk Life Insurance to first place in the regular league, continues to play a big role in the championship match. Kim Yeon-kyung, who regained her sense of the game by exploding 26 points after overcoming sluggishness in the first game, scored 18 points in the second game, leading the team to two consecutive victories. Now, if Heungkuk Life Insurance adds one win, it will achieve the feat of a combined championship in four years after the 2018-2019 season.
Currently, there is a very high probability that Heungkuk Life Insurance will lift the championship trophy. So far, the team that won both the first and second games in the women’s championship match had a 100% chance of winning. Heungkuk Life Insurance is fully equipped with the return of setter Lee Won-jeong, who had a hamstring injury, while Expressway Corporation is struggling as players show symptoms of a collective cold. 먹튀검증
If Kim Yeon-kyung, who is likely to be the MVP of the regular league this season, leads the team to a combined championship, it fits perfectly with the picture of retiring at the top that she wants. I wonder what choice Kim Yeon-kyung will make if Heungkuk Life Insurance catches up to Game 3 and wins the championship match. Regarding her decision to retire, Kim Yeon-kyung said, “If you wait a little bit, I will coordinate with the club and tell you.” What is Kim Yeon-kyung thinking right now?
