Hanyang University Kim Hyeong-geun, who grew up as an ace after changing his position, “The goal is to win the league”
“I want to win the league more than any other competition.”
Hanyang University won against Kyunghee University with a set score of 3-1 (21-25, 25-14, 25-23, 25-14) in the 2023 KUSF University Volleyball U-League held at Seonsunggwan, Kyunghee University, Yongin on the 13th.
The first-class contributor who led Hanyang University to victory was Kim Hyung-geun (Junior, OH, 197cm). Kim Hyung-geun scored 17 points, including 4 servings and 1 blocking. This was the most goals scored by a Hanyang University player. Kim Hyung-geun said, “I did a lot of analysis before this game. He tried to play based on that analysis, and he seems to have worked out. That’s why I’m more happy,” he said of his victory.
Hanyang University lost to Chungnam National University in the first game of the U-League on the 6th after a close match that went all the way to a full set. Hanyang University, who started the first game with a loss, gnashed their teeth even more. Kim Hyung-geun said, “The coach said after the last game that the concentration of the game and the appearance of collapsing at once when losing came out. So he said that he and his teammates should not come out.”
Kim Hyung-geun, who played the role of an ace and presented victory to the team, said that his score in this match was 65 points out of 100. “I feel like I haven’t shown everything I can do. He showed a dissatisfied appearance, saying, “I feel particularly regretful in defense and blocking.”
Kim Hyung-geun, who leads Hanyang University’s offense by going back and forth between outside heater and apposite spike, played an active role as a middle blocker until last season. However, ahead of this season, he chose to change his position to a wing striker. It was not easy for him to digest the game in an unfamiliar position. Kim Hyung-geun said, “There are many difficulties after changing positions. When he’s an outside hitter, he’s still lacking in receiving, and when he’s on the apogee, he thinks he’s lacking when it comes to attacking and blocking.” 스포츠토토
Kim Hyung-geun knew what he lacked. And he is continuing his efforts to supplement that part. He said, “I do receive training every day. Even after this exercise, I am trying to make up for my shortcomings by doing personal training,” said Hyung-geun Kim.
Kim Hyung-geun cited his calmness as his greatest strength. He said, “I started playing volleyball in the third grade of elementary school. He has been doing it for a long time, so he seems to be calm at any moment.” Conversely, the downside is, “When it collapses, it often collapses. We need to fix that in the future.”
Lastly, Kim Hyung-geun shared his goals for this season. “Personally, I want to feel that I have grown because I changed my position rather than setting a record goal. As a team, I want to win the league more than other competitions.”
