Coach Kim Ho-cheol embraced the No. 1 player in his heart.
IBK Industrial Bank won first place honor in the 2023 Korean Volleyball Federation (KOVO) Women’s Foreign Player Draft held at the DoubleTree by Hilton Umraniye, Istanbul, Turkey on the 13th (local time).
Following the Asian Quarter, which was held earlier, in the Foreign Draft, he obtained the first choice in a row. Director Kim Ho-cheol of IBK Industrial Bank, who went up to the podium first, nominated Britney Abercrombie (191cm, OP, USA) without hesitation. I participated on the last day of the three tryouts, but my name was called first.
IBK Industrial Bank coach Kim Ho-cheol, who once again selected the player in the first place, said, “If you do it one more time, it’s a triple crown,” and said, “Other teams will be puzzled. There were many players to choose from, but we picked the right player for our team. She was able to choose Britney without hesitation.”
After selecting Abercrombie, coach Kim Ho-cheol said, “This is a player I had in mind even before the tryout. The video continued to watch her performance from the national team to the Turkish League. He chose the reason for the nomination, saying, “I also kept checking the Puerto Rico League matches.
“It’s not a flashy and powerful player, but I was looking for a player who fits our team, so I picked it. Although he is not a good player physically, he has a wide range of attacks and has many strengths as a left-hander. I took this part high, and it will fit well with our team.”
I also looked forward to working with Ponpun Gedraphd, who was selected through the Asia Quarter. Coach Kim said, “Ponpun and (Kim) Ha-kyung both have to play speed volleyball. He may have picked a taller player, but he had the setter and breathing in mind.”
However, Abercrombie will have to leave for a while to digest Puerto Rico’s national team schedule during the offseason. Phonpun also has to return to the team after going through the Thai national team schedule.
In response, Director Kim said, “It can’t be helped. Abercrombie will come in after the Olympic qualifiers. He joined and practiced once before, and is going to go to the national team again. The concern is that Phonpun is coming in October. In the meantime, depending on how much Ha-kyung does, our team’s performance will change a lot.”메이저사이트
