“I’m at an age where I can retire at any time.”토스카지노

Samsung Fire middle blocker Ha Hyun-yong, 41, hasn’t missed a season since his first professional season in 2005. The former Rookie of the Year has always been a player who is respected by younger players for his sincere and exemplary attitude. Thanks to his consistent self-management, he is still a dominant presence in the center.

However, he has yet to lift a single trophy in his career. He had his chance when he was with Woori Card in the 2020-21 season, but was outclassed by Korean Air.

“I’ve been with the team since the first year of the program, but we haven’t won a championship,” said Ha Hyun-yong, who we met at Samsung Fire’s practice gym in Yongin, Gyeonggi-do. However, the team finished last last season. We want to do better than winning. For now, we’re aiming for the playoffs. If we make it to the playoffs, we don’t know what will happen.”

Ha, who joined Samsung Fire via trade last season, played in 32 games and recorded 103 points and 0.291 blocks per set. In his own words, it was a 2 percent disappointment.

“Last season, I had a lot of roles to play after switching teams,” Ha said. I think I overdid it because I had a big desire to show, and my physical condition wasn’t as good as I thought it would be. I was very disappointed. “This season, I’m working hard to show a good performance,” he said, “and the coach is very considerate. The coach is also very supportive. I will not give up and give it a try,” he said encouragingly.

At 41 years old, Yeo is the oldest player in the men’s competition after Hyundai Capital Playing Coach Yeo Oh-hyun, who was born in 1978. Nevertheless, Ha Hyun-yong has been a constant presence in the center.

“I’ve had some minor injuries, but I think I’ve been able to play so long because I’ve been able to stay injury-free. I’m trying to stick to the task at hand,” he laughs, adding, “People tell me to play longer, but I’m just looking at one year at a time. In fact, I’m at an age where it’s not strange to retire at any time.”

“So I try to think about things that are close to me rather than looking at things that are far away. I always want to be a plus for the team. Anyway, I’m preparing hard because I have to show better than last season,” he said.

Samsung Fire finished in last place last season. To rebuild their reputation, Ha Hyun-yong and other Samsung Fire players have been sweating it out in the offseason to prepare for the 2023-24 season.

In conclusion, Ha Hyun-yong said, “We didn’t perform well last season, but I think we did our best until the end. Now the results should follow, and if we don’t give up until the end, I think the results will come. I will show the players that I am united with them.”
