Director Kwon Young-min “Shin Young-seok, power just by being…achieve 1,200 blocks”


Veteran middle blocker Shin Young-seok (37-KEPCO) takes the court earlier than anyone else.

He can often be seen practicing his serve alone on the court before the game starts.

It was no different at Uijeongbu Gymnasium in Gyeonggi-do, Gyeonggi-do, on the 18th against 메이저 토토사이트 KB Insurance.

It was also the day Shin Young-seok was close to achieving personal records in serving and blocking.

Shin is the all-time leader in blocked shots and is just one away from reaching 1,200 in his career. Second is retired Lee Sun-gyu (1,56) and third is Samsung Fire‘s Ha Hyun-yong (1,17).

He also needs just two more service points to become the sixth player in history to reach 300 service points.

“I hope both records will be set today,” Kwon Young-min, head coach of KEPCO, told reporters before the match.

Kwon praised Young-seok, saying, “He is not in his normal body with bad ankles and knees, but he continues to play well.” “Just being on the court gives the team strength and intimidates opponents,” he added.

“She always studies a lot and leads the juniors well. He has a strong desire to win and a sense of responsibility, so as a coach, it’s good to have a player like him,” he said.

Fifth-ranked KEPCO (34-12 W-11 L) will look to take on bottom-ranked KB Insurance (17-4 W-19 L) on Sunday to gain a foothold in the top tier.

They are just five points behind third-place OK Financial Group (14-10) and four points behind fourth-place Samsung Fire (14-9).

“I emphasized to the players that they shouldn’t take (the opponent) lightly,” Kwon said, “and I’m relieved that our two most important players, Tais and Ha Seung-woo, are in good shape.”

“I’m going to try to shake Ha Seung-woo with my serve,” said KB Insurance coach Hoo In-jung, adding, “We’ve lost ground in the standings and the playoffs are far away, but we’ll do our best until the end.”
