“I’m trying to follow my brothers slowly.”
Hyundai Capital, led by coach Choi Tae-woong, won a thrilling 3-1 victory against Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance in the 4th round of the Dodram 2022-23 V-League men’s division held at Cheonan Yu Gwan-sun Gymnasium on the 15th.
On this day, Park Sang-ha, who started with Choi Min-ho, performed sluggishly. Then coach Choi Tae-woong put Song Won-geun in from the middle of the second set, and Song Won-geun played a perfect role. Song Won-geun scored 7 points, the most points in an individual game. 3 blocks were also added.
After the game, coach Choi Tae-woong said, “Song Won-geun prepared hard in the off-season. He worked hard on his basic skills training and overcame difficult training well. I hope it goes well with today’s match. I hope he will become a consistently good player.”
Song Won-geun, whom we met after the game, said, “I came in when the team was in trouble, and the coach told me a lot of good things. He also talked a lot with his teammates and got through his crisis well. He seems to have a good synergy.”
Song Won-geun is from 메이저사이트 Inha University and joined Hyundai Capital in the 2nd round in 2019 as the 1st pick. However, it was not easy for him to get his chance at Hyundai Capital. Hyundai Capital’s national middle blockers Choi Min-ho and Park Sang-ha are firmly holding on. The number of games he played was only 20 while digesting four seasons in the pro before this game.
He said, “They are very good brothers. There will be times when the hyungs are not in a good condition. Then I have to prepare accordingly. He has a desire to win, but experience is not an easy win. He tries to follow slowly,” he laughed.
What will we learn from Choi Min-ho and Park Sang-ha? “They are good at blocking. The hyungs have a different blocking feel, and their steps are different. Minho hyung is quick on his feet and good at jumping. The top and bottom types are better in terms of timing than height. Song Won-geun said, “I try to learn many things through my older brothers.”
Finally, Song Won-geun said, “I am the most basic of our team’s middle blockers. So, I practiced a lot of basic skills during the off-season. Also, after completing the basic training, I worked a lot with the setters. I feel good because I feel like my skills are improving as I keep practicing.”
