Hyundai Engineering & Construction’s Wipa Wi left behind the sorrow of his father’s death and worked hard to contribute to the victory.
Wipawi scored 10 points with a high attack success rate of 53.33% in the 3rd round match of the Dodram 2023-2024 V-League Women’s Division against Korea Expressway Corporation held at Suwon Gymnasium on the 7th
defeating Hyundai Engineering & Construction’s set score of 3-1 (25-19 17-25 25-1725-16) led to victory.
Wipawi recently lost his father.
He left for his hometown, Chiang Rai, Thailand, on the 1st and returned on the evening of the 5th.
He trained for only one day on the 6th and played in the game, making a great performance.
Hyundai Construction Manager Kang Seong-hyung excluded Wipawi from the starting lineup out of consideration
but after losing the second set, he included him in the starting lineup from the third set onwards.
The strategy was successful and Wipawi played a key role in the 3rd and 4th sets. He did his part in attack, but he also shined in defense, with a high receiving efficiency of 46.15% and successful blocking twice. 토토사이트
After the game, Coach Kang said, “Wipawi returned to his hometown and needed to adjust his condition.
He did well on offense and defense. He praised Wipawi, saying
With Wipawi coming in, Kim Da-in has also done well.”
Wipawi said, “It was a little difficult after returning
but the coach gave me time to rest, so today was okay,” and “At first, I was very surprised and sad when I heard the news.
He went to Thailand and spent time with his family and talked a lot.
Even though he had a hard time after returning, he received a lot of support.
If there’s something to be done, you have to do it,” he said
emphasizing that one must do one’s part independently of one’s personal affairs.
Wipawi has settled into his first season in the V-League without difficulty and is establishing himself as an important player in Hyundai Engineering & Construction.
Wipawi said,“It is important to adapt well to the team, but it is not difficult because my colleagues are so good.
He also likes Korean food. He likes boneless chicken feet, pork belly, stir-fried bean sprouts, and soybean paste stew.
The club restaurant is so delicious,” he said, adding that he is adapting well to Korea.
He continued, “If you look at the schedule, it seems difficult to digest, but the director and staff are good at adjusting the schedule, so it’s okay.”
In addition, Wipawi said, “It seems like blocking has improved further.
I feel much better than before,” he said, talking about what has changed since entering the V League.
Currently, Hyundai Engineering & Construction is competing fiercely with leader Heungkuk Life Insurance.
First of all, Hyundai Engineering & Construction is in the pursuit.
Director Kang said, “It’s so hard to have Kim Yeon-kyung.
Kim Yeon-kyung is the god of volleyball,” he said, adding that Kim Yeon-kyung’s presence makes a difference.
Wipawi’s thoughts are no different. He said, “Kim Yeon-kyung is the best. He is good at everything.
I agree with the coach who said he is the god of volleyball.”
