KOREA WOME’S VOLLEYBALL FALLS TO THAILAND IN FIRST EVER QUARTERFINAL AT ASIAN CHAMPIONSHIPS

South Korea’s women’s volleyball team failed to advance to the quarterfinals of the Asian Championships after being swept by Thailand.This is the first time the Korean women’s volleyball team has ever made it past the quarterfinals at an Asian Championship.Led by head coach César Hernández González, Korea lost to Thailand 0-3 (20-25 22-25 23-25) in straight sets in their Group E match of the quarterfinal round of the 2023 Asian Volleyball Championship in Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand on Wednesday.In the second Group E match of the day, Vietnam swept Australia 3-0 (25-15 25-15 25-21) in straight sets, sealing Korea’s relegation to the 5-8 bracket.South Korea, who finished second in Pool C (2-1), entered the quarterfinal round with one loss.In Group E, Vietnam, which defeated South Korea in the preliminary round, and Group A champion Thailand entered the quarterfinals with one win, while South Korea and Australia entered with one loss.The top two teams in Pool E advance to the quarterfinals.With two losses for South Korea and Australia, and two wins for Thailand and Vietnam, the quarterfinals were decided early.In Group F of the quarterfinal round, China and Japan also earned two wins to advance.South Korea has reached the quarterfinals 20 times since its first appearance at the Asian Championships in 1975, with the exception of the 2021 tournament, which it missed. While they have never won the title, they have kept their pride alive with seven runner-up finishes, 10 third-place finishes, and three fourth-place finishes.”Fourth place is the goal,” Cesar said before the tournament.What seemed like a realistic goal turned out to be an “unattainable goal” when the lid was lifted.South Korea, ranked 35th by the FIVB, was outclassed by Thailand, which had risen to 15th.After giving up a fast break to Thailand at 16-16 in the first set, Korea was unable to break through Thailand’s tight defense in the ensuing rally. Attack errors by Lee Sun-woo (KGC Ginseng Corporation) and Lee Han-bi (Pepper Savings Bank) brought the score to 16-20, and Korea lost the first set in vain.In the second set, Korea’s attack errors continued in the middle of the set, widening the gap.The Koreans fought hard to get back into the match, but were unable to get over the hump in the third set.At 21-21, Wipawi Sithong missed an open attack, and in the ensuing rally, Tanata Sooksot hit an unforced error.At 23-22, she conceded an open attack to Wipawi again to face match point.Park Jung-ah (Pepper Savings Bank) got one point back with an open attack, but Thailand ended the match with a diagonal attack from Wipawi at 24-23.Wipawi was named the Asia Quarter by Hyundai E&C of the Korean Professional Volleyball V League.In addition to outside hitter Wipawi, setters Ponpoon Gedpard (IBK) and Apojit Spike (Korea Expressway Corporation), who will play in the 2023-2024 V-League, dominated the Korean squad.After failing to secure a top-four finish in Asia, South Korea will play Australia on Thursday in the final match of the quarterfinal round, followed by the fifth through eighth place 온라인카지노 matches.
