“When you are at the highest level… “
’Volleyball Empress’ Kim Yeon-kyung (35) directly revealed her retirement concerns. In the match against Pepper Savings Bank in the 5th round of the Dodram 2022-2023 V-League held at Incheon Samsan Gymnasium on the 15th, he scored 19 points, the most in the team, with an attack success rate of 63.33%, leading the team’s shutout victory.
Kim Yeon-kyung, who appeared at the press conference after the game, said, “It would be a lie if I said I had no intention of retiring. He is 36 years old in Korean age,” he said, “I played as a volleyball player for a long time. Each player has a different바카라사이트 opinion, but I think it’s good to come down when you’re in a high position. Retirement has not yet been decided. Coordinating with the club. I will make a final decision within this season,” he said, revealing that he is seriously contemplating retirement.
Kim Yeon-kyung is still showing the best skills. He turned Heungkuk Life Insurance, which was ranked 6th last season, into a team that competes for the lead. Kim Yeon-kyung’s credit is great. With this victory, Heungkuk Life Insurance took first place in 106 days. Kim Yeon-kyung is in the top ranks in major attack indicators this season, including 1st overall overall offense, 5th in scoring, 3rd in open offense, 4th in quick open, and 1st in time difference. It’s not a claim, but it’s also playing the role of a ‘mental support’.
He also showed strong ‘ticket power’ this season. Heungkuk Life Insurance, as well as in the away game, achieved a ‘full case’ to see him. However, recently, coach Kwon Soon-chan was suddenly sacked and director Kim Ki-joong declined after being appointed. Kim Yeon-kyung drew a line, saying, “It is not a matter of deciding (retirement) based on recent events.”
At the end of this season, Kim Yeon-kyung gets the status of a free agent (FA) for the first time in the V-League. This is the reason why a lot of it was poured into his future move. In the 2005-2006 season, Kim Yeon-kyung wore the Heungkuk Life Insurance uniform as the first pick in the first round of the draft. His last championship was in the 2008-2009 season. If he wins at Heungkuk Life Insurance this season, he will lift the championship trophy for the first time in 14 years.
This is why Kim Yeon-kyung desperately wants to win, even though she has won numerous championships overseas. As Kim Yeon-kyung said, attention is focusing on whether he will be able to retire with applause when he is at the highest level after winning the championship.
