Yasmin Bedart (registered name Yasmin), a key striker of Hyundai Engineering & Construction in the women’s professional volleyball team, began to shed tears during the first set of an away game against KGC Ginseng Corporation on the 11th of last month.
He was suffering from severe pain in his right shoulder.
Veteran striker Hwang Yeon-joo, who was warming up after Yasmin’s sudden departure, was put into the court.
Hwang Yeon-joo acted as an apposite spiker and scored 17 points, filling Yasmin’s vacancy brilliantly.
Hwang Yeon-joo also led the team to victory by scoring 17 points, the most in the team, in the next match against Pepper Savings Bank on November 16th.
In the meantime, Yasmin, who devoted herself to recovery, returned to IBK Industrial Bank on November 20th and started running vigorously again.
Hyundai E&C recently lost another main beam. It was when Yang Hyo-jin, the main middle blocker, was confirmed with a novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19).
With Yang Hyo-jin, the pillar of the team, missing, Hyundai E&C coach Kang Seong-hyung appointed backup Na Hyeon-soo as a starter against GS Caltex on the 15th.
Na Hyun-soo is an unknown player who transferred from KGC Ginseng Corporation through a trade last May, and scored only 2 points last season.
Coach Kang judged that Na Hyun-soo, the only left-hander among active middle blockers, could catch the opponent off guard.
Na Hyun-soo performed more than expected. He scored 10 points, the most since his debut, including 4 points only by blocking on this day.
His performance was so outstanding that he was ahead of the main middle blocker Lee Da-hyun in blocking and scoring.
Hyundai E&C took the game to a set score of 3-1 as Na Hyun-soo brilliantly filled the void left by Yang Hyo-jin.
Hyundai E&C is not a team that relies on one or two key players such as Yasmin and Yang Hyojin.
Head coach Kang Seong-hyeong, who took office in March of last year, injected the ‘one team spirit’ into the team and transformed it into a team in which all players are equally active.
Considered the best player in the 메이저놀이터 V-League women’s division, Yasmin’s attack share in the team this season is only 33.3%. It is easy to guess the color of Hyundai E&C’s team compared to the offensive share (43.2%) of GS Caltex’s foreign player Moma this season.
Hyundai E&C, which does not rely on some key players, fills the gap brilliantly even with injured players.
Like ‘Lego’, which puts another block together when one block is missing, Hyundai E&C is working hard all season.
Hyundai E&C is running towards a higher place than last season, which had the best performance ever.
In fact, Hyundai E&C set a record that will remain in the history of the 2021-2022 season. Up to round 5, he posted 27 wins, 3 losses and 80 points, exceeding the record for the most wins and most points in a single season, and during this period, he achieved more than 10 consecutive wins in a single season for the first time in the V-League twice.
In addition, various records were changed, such as the minimum 20 wins (21 games), the most consecutive wins after the opening (12 consecutive wins), and the most consecutive wins (15 consecutive wins).
However, as the new coronavirus infection (Corona 19) hit the V-League, the league ended at the end of the 5th round, and Hyundai E&C remained with the title of ‘Top 1’ instead of ‘Winning Team’.
Hyundai E&C is playing the league stronger this season after overcoming bad luck last year.
Hyundai E&C has won 13 consecutive wins from the opening game to the game against GS Caltex, surpassing the record for the most consecutive wins after the opening game they set last season.
If you add two more wins, you will tie the record for the most consecutive wins set last season. The record for the most consecutive wins at home in the V-League (22 consecutive wins), which has been since October 17, 2021, continues.
Hyundai E&C is making a new history with ‘Lego Volleyball’ where everyone is united.
