After a long rehabilitation, Nolan stood in front of the fans.
On the 3rd, at Chungmu Gymnasium in Daejeon, KGC Ginseng Corporation and Korea Expressway Corporation’s Dodram 2022-2023 V-League 3rd round confrontation was in full swing, and when a player was replaced, the crowd cheered with applause.
It was because KGC Ginseng Corporation Libero Yellow finished his long rehabilitation and had a comeback match. In a phone interview with <The Spike>, Nolan said, “When the replacement was put in, the sound of applause and cheers were loud, so I was moved and grateful. But he tried to focus on the game right away,” he said, recalling the first time he stepped on the court of the season.
It was his first appearance in the 2022-2023 season, but Nolan tried 8 receives and 10 digs, recording no errors and showing a stable appearance. However, he felt more regret that the team had lost. “Personally, considering that it was a comeback match, I think it was okay, but it was regrettable that the team lost. It was an important match, and I still have a lot of thoughts about what it would have been like if I had been more stable.”
Nolan was selected for the off-season national team and competed in the 2022 International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) Volleyball Nations League (VNL), but suffered a major injury called Achilles tendon rupture and was on the operating table. He said, “He had a good season and went to the national team, but when he got injured, he thought, ‘I’m not very lucky either.’ He didn’t know it was a serious injury at first. However, he was anxious because he knew that the test results were worse than expected. He endured, thinking that he had to overcome it well.”
After suffering an injury, Noran worked harder than anyone else in rehabilitation to return to the court as soon as possible. “I rehabilitated in the morning and joined the team in the afternoon to do weight training. And when it was all over, I spent time receiving treatment,” he said of his daily pattern.
I worked hard on rehab, but I couldn’t find yellow on the court before the opening of the 2022-2023 season of KGC Ginseng Corporation. Nolan, who watched the team’s matches for a while after the season began, said, “The team as a whole felt better than last season, so I wondered what it would have been like if I had played together. However, during bad times, my libero friends worked hard, but it didn’t work out, so it was difficult. So he tried to help a lot from the side,” he said, expressing his desire to help the team even amid injuries.
Nolan was particularly concerned about distressed paper. Koh Min-ji, who was active as an outside hitter, switched to the libero at the recommendation of coach Hee-jin Ko when the KGC Ginseng Corporation libero position was empty due to Yellow’s injury. Nolan helped as much as possible for Ko Min-ji, who was struggling in an unfamiliar position. “Originally, Receive was a stable player. Go Min-ji said, “Try hard. I will help as much as I can,” he said. 스포츠토토
Now, with the joining of Nolan, it is possible to reduce the burden of distressed land. Nolan said, “Now that I’ve returned, I want to help the team go to spring volleyball. And I want to finish the season without getting sick anymore.”
Finally, to the fans, “When I was injured, you cheered me on a lot, which gave me a lot of strength. I think it will be a great strength in my future career as a player. I really want to say thank you,” he said, ending the interview.
