Yang Hyo-jin (34, 190cm), a middle blocker of Hyundai Engineering & Construction in the women’s professional volleyball team, was a leading figure in the golden generation of Korean women’s volleyball. For 13 years from 2008 to 2021, he shared several glorious moments, including the silver medal at the 2010 Guangzhou Asian Games, the gold medal at the 2014 Incheon Asian Games, the bronze medal at the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games, and the legend of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics semifinals.
It is a living legend that can never be left out in the V-League. He is a franchise star who joined Hyundai Engineering & Construction in the 2007-2008 season and played only on one team. He led the team to two regular league titles, two championship matches, and one combined victory. On top of that, it also boasts a stellar individual award history, including nine times in the best seven middle blockers category and two times in the regular league MVP.
Yang Hyo-jin returned the Taegeuk mark after the 2021 Tokyo Olympics. He announced his retirement from the national team along with Kim Yeon-kyung and Kim Soo-ji (Heungkuk Life Insurance), who have long been the pillars of the national team.
Since then, the national team has begun a generational shift, and has recently suffered from severe growth pains. Cesar Hernandez, who assisted former coach Stefano Lavarini as a coach, took the helm and had a disastrous performance with 1 win and 28 losses. He suffered the humiliation of losing all games for the second time in a row in the Volleyball Federation (FIVB) Volleyball Nations League (VNL), and the victory was the only win against Croatia after four consecutive losses at last year’s world championships.
How does Yang Hyo-jin feel when he sees the national team in a slump. Yang Hyo-jin, who went through all the hardships while playing for the national team, deeply sympathized with the hardships of his juniors. Yang Hyo-jin, who met with CBS No Cut News at Hyundai Engineering & Construction’s off-season training held in Goseong-gun, Gyeongsangnam-do from the 10th to the 13th, gave sincere encouragement and advice to his juniors.
Yang Hyo-jin is preparing for the 17th season. His eyes ahead of the new season seemed more desperate than ever. This is because he missed the championship for the past two consecutive seasons. 바카라사이트
