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 ‘Dodram 2022-2023 V-League All-Star Game’ Best Libero Contest held at Incheon Samsan World Gymnasium 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 has designated and puts the most balls into the basket prepared in advance. The given time is only 30 seconds. 스포츠토토
Five Libero players who were selected for the All-Star Game participated in the contest. In the men’s division, Jeong Min-soo (KB Insurance), Park Kyung-min (Hyundai Capital), and Sang-wook Lee (Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance) competed against each other in the female division, Kim Hae-ran (Heungkuk Life Insurance) and Choi Hyo-seo (KGC Ginseng Corporation).
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 I changed them because they were nervous.”
