Jung Jeong-yoon (Hyundai E&C), who was withdrawn from the national team due to injury, was on the roster for the Hangzhou Asian Games in September, but it was reportedly not revised.

On September 12, Korean women’s volleyball coach Han Yoo-mi shared on social media the roster for the Hangzhou Asian Games announced by the Korea Olympic Committee.

However, the roster did not include Jung Jeong-yoon, who is currently out for 12 weeks.

Previously, in August, while preparing for the 2023 Asian Championships at the Jincheon Athletes’ Village, Jeong tore a ligament in his right ankle during a landing and was forced to withdraw from the national team. He was subsequently diagnosed with an 8-12 week transposition and is expected to undergo a long-term rehabilitation of approximately three months. It is unclear if he will be able to play in the early stages of the V-League regular season before the international tournament. Even if his rehabilitation goes smoothly and quickly, there is a high probability that he will play from the middle of the second round.

On the 13th, a Hyundai E&C official who spoke with us said, “Perhaps the roster announced by the Korean Sports Federation has not yet been revised,” adding, “It was confirmed that Jung Ji-yoon’s name was not included in the final roster for the Asian Games.”

Kim Da-eun (Heungkuk Life) and Lee Han-bi (Pepper Savings Bank) were also left off the list. “Kim Da-eun will join the team (Heungkuk Life) soon, and (Lee) Joo-ah will go to the Asian Games without any problems,” said an official from Heungkuk Life who was contacted.

According to the latest news, Jeong is currently in the midst of rehabilitation and has been practicing walking on crutches and slowly putting weight on her feet.

An official from the Korean Volleyball Association, who was also contacted on the same day, said, “It is correct that Jeong Ji-yoon has been removed from the roster. Kim Yeon-yeon, Lee Sun-woo, and Park Eun-jin have been added as replacements,” and delivered the officially finalized roster for the Hangzhou Asian Games.토토사이트
