After suspension, Jeong Joong-seok joins South Korea’s men’s volleyball team in strengthening training
Jung Ji-seok (Korean Air), one of the best outside hitters in Korean men’s volleyball, returns to national training after a one-year absence.
The Korea Volleyball Association (KVA) on Wednesday announced the 17-player roster for the 2023 Korean Men’s National Team’s reinforcement training program.
“These players will participate in various international competitions in 2023, including the Hangzhou Asian Games and the Asian Volleyball Confederation (AVC) Challenger Cup,” the organization said.
On May 6 last year, Jeong was suspended by the Korea Volleyball Association (KVA) for one year for strengthening training for representative players. This means that he will not be able to be selected for the national team for one year.
In September 2021, Jeong was investigated by law enforcement agencies following a complaint from his ex-girlfriend about dating violence and illegal filming.
He later settled all legal issues with the accuser and submitted the settlement and a letter of dismissal to the police in October last year, after which the prosecution was granted a deferred prosecution.
The Korean Volleyball Organization (KOVO), which governs professional volleyball, held a punishment committee and fined Jeong a fine of 5 million won, while Korean Air separately imposed its own punishment of suspending him for the remainder of the second round of the regular season.
The Korean Volleyball Association’s “one-year suspension for strengthening training for representative players” is also over, meaning Jeong will be able to compete in international competitions. She is expected to compete in the Hangzhou Asian Games, which begin in September.
Most of the players selected for the intensive training program have been training at the Jincheon Athletes’ Village since the first of the month. 먹튀검증
Jeong Jung-seok, who competed in the Asian Club Championship with his Korean Air teammates, will move in on the 24th.
Setters Hwang Taek-ui (Armed Forces Athletic Corps) and Kim Myung-kwan (Hyundai Capital), and liberos Park Kyung-min (Hyundai Capital) and Oh Jae-sung (Woori Card) were selected for the national team training.
Six outside hitters, including recently enlisted Na Kyung-bok (KB Insurance), Hwang Kyung-min (KB Insurance), Lim Sung-jin (KEPCO), Kim Ji-han (Woori Card), Jeong Jung-yong (Korean Air) and Jeong Ji-seok (Korean Air), and two outside hitters, Heo Soo-bong (Hyundai Capital) and Lim Dong-hyuk (Korean Air), will lead the Korean Men’s Volleyball Team’s wing attack.
Middle blockers Kim Gyu-min, Kim Min-jae (Korean Air), Park Joon-hyuk (Woori Card), Lee Sang-hyun (Woori Card) and Kim Jun-woo (Samsung Fire) will also wear the Taeguk mark.
