The eldest sister’s fighting spirit… Thirty-seven Hwang Yeon-joo crazy presence

The most popular sport in winter is women’s professional volleyball. The rivalry draws the attention of fans. The popularity of outstanding star Kim Yeon-kyung (Heungkuk Life Insurance) also contributed to the popularity of women’s volleyball.

The 37-year-old veteran, Hwang Yeon-ju, is flying wild this winter. He is the representative striker of Hyundai E&C, which is overwhelmingly in first place with 20 wins and 2 losses (56 points).

He also played a big role in the match against KGC Ginseng Corporation held on the 14th. Applause erupted at the spike hit at an angle parallel to the net. Commentator Park Mi-hee, who was relaying the game, said, “The attack was successful in a very difficult position. It is an angle that could only be seen in its heyday. It’s not a waste to give it 2 points at that level.” Hyundai Engineering & Construction coach Kang Seong-hyeong also said, “I didn’t know that Hwang Yeon-joo would be put into so many games. Even though Hwang Yeon-joo is old, he diligently digests all team training like young players.”

Hwang Yeon-ju is a living legend of the V-League. He is from the rookie of the year in 2005. In the 2010-11 season, he swept the regular league, all-star, and championship MVP awards. After teammate Yang Hyo-jin, she ranks second in women’s career scoring (5708 points). Back Attack is the only one with a four-digit number (1223). Although he is relatively short (1m77cm) as a volleyball player, he makes use of his excellent jumping power to hit hard.

As he entered his mid-thirties, Hwang Yeon-joo’s opportunities to compete decreased noticeably. He scored 378 points in the 2017-18 season, but after that, he only scored 280 points in four combined seasons. He spends more time outside than inside the court. 온라인바카라

But his season is different. Hwang Yeon-joo is filling the void left by foreign striker Yasmin Bedardt due to a back injury. Hwang Yeon-joo scored more than 20 points three times in eight games since Yasmin was injured.

Hwang Yeon-joo said, “Being with young players, he forgets his age. Everyone asks about his secret to taking care of his body, but there is nothing special. He just does the same exercise every day,” he said.

Yeonju Hwang’s position is light. He is also called the ‘opposite spiker’ because he sits diagonally from the setter. A back attack is essential in this position. Even in his mid-30s, Yeon-Joo Hwang still has a nice back attack. Hwang Yeon-joo said, “It is more difficult than before. He also feels powerless in his spikes. So I have no choice but to hit with all my might,” he said. “When Yasmin returns, the team will be stronger. Our team is a mix of veterans and young players. The driving force behind good grades is the harmony of old and new.”

Hyundai E&C, led by Hwang Yeon-joo, took first place in both the 2019-20 and 2021-22 seasons. However, due to the spread of Corona, the championship match was not played. Hwang Yeon-joo, who has reached the top five times in the professional league, has no choice but to regret it. Hwang Yeon-joo said, “Since the championship match was canceled, we were not officially recognized as the winning team. This year, I want to be recognized as a winning team by finishing well.”
