Women’s volleyball, ending its long losing streak, enters the second week of VNL Challenge for consecutive wins against Bulgaria

The Korean women’s volleyball team aims for its second consecutive win in the United States

The ‘Morales‘ women’s volleyball team, which broke the chain of 30 consecutive losses in international competitions that lasted for more than two years, enters the second week of the 2024 Volleyball Nations League (VNL).

Korea, led by coach Fernando Morales, will play its first game of the second week against Bulgaria in Arlington, Texas, USA on the 30th (Korean time).

Korea escaped the nightmare of 30 consecutive losses in the VNL that has continued since 2021 by winning with a set score of 3-1 against Thailand in the fourth game of week 1 held in Rio, Brazil on the 20th.

Starting with three consecutive losses in 2021, Korea suffered the humiliation of 12 consecutive losses for two consecutive years in 2022 and 2023 under former coach Cesar Hernández. By defeating Thailand, Korea achieved victory for the first time in three years since the match against Canada on June 15, 2021.

Starting with three consecutive losses in 2021, Korea suffered the humiliation of 12 consecutive losses for two consecutive years in 2022 and 2023 under former coach Cesar Hernández. By defeating Thailand, Korea achieved victory for the first time in three years since the match against Canada on June 15, 2021.

The VNL ranking also rose from 42nd to 38th. Korea, which has changed its stagnant atmosphere, will play a four-game series against powerful teams in the United States.

Starting with Bulgaria (30th, 21st place), they will face off against Poland (31st, 3rd place), Turkye (June 2nd, 1st place), and Canada (3rd, 10th place). They are all stronger teams than us.

At least Bulgaria, the first opponent, is the most worthy opponent. Bulgaria has yet to secure a win in week 1 of the VNL, having lost four in a row. The VNL ranking is 21st. In last year’s match, Korea lost with a set score of 1-3.

After finishing the first week of play in Brazil, Morales focused on improving his organizational skills by cooling off in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Afterwards, they entered the United States, the decisive battle site, and are aiming for victory in the match against Bulgaria.

Korea is pinning its hopes on ace Kang So-hwi (Korea Expressway Corporation), who survived the match against Thailand, as well as left and right doubles, Park Jeong-ah (Pepper Savings Bank) and Jeong Ji-yoon (Hyundai Engineering & Construction). For the national team, which is actively utilizing the center, the performance of middle blockers such as Lee Joo-ah (IBK Industrial Bank of Korea) and Lee Da-hyun (Hyundai Engineering & Construction) will also be important.

After completing the second week of the schedule, Korea will move to Japan and play the third and final week of matches in Fukuoka starting on the 11th of next month. VNL determines the winner through a tournament if the team ranks in the top 8 in the group stage. 토토사이트
