Korean star Kim takes notice of PH volleybelles’ improvement

BIÑAN, Laguna—Korea captain Kim Yeon-koung had played just 10 minutes during the group stages of the AVC Asian Women’s Volleyball Championship so it came as a huge surprise when she stepped up against the host in the classification stages.

Kim sat out the first two games in the preliminaries as she got permission from Korea head coach Hong Sungjin to take a breather after just competing in the FIVB World Grand Prix.

The Fenerbahce outside hitter, though, told Hong that she was ready to play against the Philippines in their first game in the classification round.

“I spoke with our coach and he said to be ready for the game so I told him that I was ready,” said Kim Sunday at Alonte Sports Arena.

Kim played late against Vietnam in Korea’s final group stage game as she entered the match in the fourth set to lead the 10th-ranked team in the world to a 25-23, 25-19, 17-25, 25-22 win.
