Choi Hyo-seo (KGC Ginseng Corporation), a fearsome newcomer this season, became the best libero in the All-Star Game.
Choi Hyo-seo took first place in the Best Libero Contest at the ‘Dodram 2022-2023 V-League All-Star Game’ held at Samsan World Gymnasium in Incheon on the 29th.
This is the first time an All-Star event has been held for a libero. The winner is the player who stably receives the ball from the server he designated and puts the most balls into the basket prepared in advance. The given time is only 30 seconds. 메이저놀이터
Five Libero players who were selected for the All-Star Game participated in the contest. Men’s Jeong Min-su (KB Insurance), Park Gyeong-min (Hyundai Capital), Lee Sang-wook (Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance) and women’s women’s Kim Hae-ran (Heungkuk Life Insurance), Choi Hyo-seo (KGC Ginseng Corporation) competed.
It may look easy, but it was never easy. Even if you received stably, most of the cases were hit by the basket and bounced out. First runner Lee Sang-wook landed only one of 13 serves. Then, Min-soo Jung and Hae-ran Kim failed to succeed. The fourth challenger, Park Gyeong-min, succeeded in one and tied with Lee Sang-wook.
The last runner was Choi Hyo-seo, who wore a Ginseng Corporation uniform with the 6th place in the 2nd round of the rookie draft. Kim Ji-han (Woori Card), Lim Seong-jin (KEPCO), and Lee So-young (Ginseng Corporation) succeeded in serving two and won the championship. Choi Hyo-seo said, “I didn’t know how many I put in,” and expressed her feeling of winning with a puzzled expression. Then, as to the reason for choosing the power server, he said, “I chose the older sisters, but they changed it because they were nervous,” making the audience laugh, and then laughed, saying, “I’m very nervous, but it’s fun playing the All-Star Game with the older sisters anyway.”
