KOREA IN FINAL SHOWDOWN OF ASIAN MEN’S U18 CHAMPIONSHIP AFTER 3-0 DEMOLITION OF TAIPEI
Tabriz, Iran, July 5, 2018 – Korea stormed into the final showdown of the 12th Asian Men’s U18 Championship with remarkable unbeaten record after demolishing Chinese Taipei in straight sets in the semi-final clash on Thursday.
The convincing 25-20, 25-23, 25-16 win gave Korea a step closer to winning their second gold medal in 19 years. The Koreans, who picked up silver last year when they went down to Japan in the final clash in the Asian Men’s U19 Championship in Nay Pyi Taw, Myanmar, won their historic gold in 1999 in Chinese Taipei.
Korea came up with quick play and powerful attacks of Park Seungsuto, foiling the Chinese Taipei’s fightback efforts. Korea, the only team which have yet lost to any team, covered the court marvellously and their resilience proved too much for the opponents throughout the three sets.
“We targeted the attacks of Chinese Taipei and stayed focused to win the match. We are going to watch the match between Iran and Japan to prepare ourselves for the final match. I think all of my players can serve the senior team of Korea in the near future. All they need is a little improvement, , Korea head coach Kang Sooyoung commented after the match.
