After Shin Young-seok, the first player in the history of men’s professional volleyball to reach 1,200 blocks, was bathed in cool water by his juniors, it was time for a wake-up call. His one word, “Hurry up and wipe (the court)!” showed a veteran who worried about the water he spilled in someone else’s room even in a moment of joy.
The game between KEPCO and KB Insurance in the fourth round of the Dodram 2023-2024 V League Men’s Division at Uijeongbu Gymnasium on Nov. 18. KEPCO’s Shin Young-seok was on the verge of reaching two milestones in the match. He would become the fourth player in history to reach the 300-serve mark and the first to reach 1,200 blocks in the V-League.
Shin Young-seok blocked Hong Sang-hyuk’s quick opener at 1-0 in the first set to increase his career block total from 1199 to 1200. 안전놀이터 No other player in the men’s game has reached the 1200 mark. Second on the all-time list is the retired Lee Sun-gyu with 1056.
He is also one step closer to another significant record.
Shin Young-seok served for a 16-10 lead in the first set, giving him 299 career serves. He needs just one more to become the sixth player in history and the fourth in Korea to reach the 300-serve mark.
Shin had five blocks and five digs in the match. He finished with 11 points, including one ace, and was second on the team in kills behind Tice, who finished with 21.
In addition to Tice and Shin, Lim Sung-jin added 10 points, Seo Jae-duk nine points, and Park Chan-woong five points as KEPCO swept KB Insurance 3-0 in straight sets.
Shin Young-seok was the centerpiece of the post-match interview. The junior players surrounded him with water bottles, and after he finished the interview, he raised his arms in cheers when he realized that the reporter had fallen aside, and was immediately doused with cool water.
Drenched from head to toe, Shin wiped the water from his face and opened his mouth. He was worried about the water on his coat. 카지노사이트 순위 Shin Young-seok said, “Hurry up and wipe it off,” and the young players, including Lim Sung-jin, cleaned up the floor.
Shin Young-seok, who joined the V League in 2008, was born in 1986 and is now 37 years old. He is still one of the best middle blockers in the league. There is talk of an aging curve, but he is constantly studying and writing records. His attentive personality and “mom” leadership of the younger players with lots of talks is also a big plus.
Shin, who changes his number every season to match the year, currently wears number 23. His goal is to wear number 30 in the 2030-2031 season.
