Here’s who Lim will face in the round of 12.
The South Korean men’s volleyball team, coached by Lim Do-heon, will open their Pool C campaign against India on Tuesday at 7 p.m. local time at the Linping Sports Center Gymnasium in Hangzhou, China. The Korean men’s volleyball team, which is looking to win its first gold medal in 17 years after the 2006 Doha Games, will open the tournament against India before facing Cambodia on Nov. 21.
A total of 19 teams will compete in men’s volleyball at the Asian Games. They will be divided into six groups. The top two teams from each group will advance to the round of 12 tournament.
If South Korea finishes first in Pool C, they will play the second-place team from Pool D, which includes Chinese Taipei, Pakistan, and Mongolia, in the quarterfinals at 2:30 p.m. on Dec. 22.
Group D already has a winner. Pakistan is the favorite. Pakistan swept Mongolia on the 19th and Chinese Taipei on the 20th, both 3-0, to clinch the top spot in Group D. They showed that they are no pushovers. They’ve shown they’re no pushovers. The winner of the 7 p.m. matchup between Mongolia and Chinese Taipei on Nov. 21 will finish second in Group D.
Objective strength of schedule favors Chinese Taipei over Mongolia. Chinese Taipei is ranked 43rd in the FIVB rankings, well ahead of Mongolia, which is ranked 91st. Chai Fei-Chang, who will play for Hyundai Capital next season, is also competing for Taiwan at the Asian Games. It’s not all sunshine and rainbows. They met Chinese Taipei in the 5th-6th place match at the Asian Championship in Iran last August, and while they came away with a 3-1 victory, it was far from easy.레고토토
If South Korea finishes first in Group C and beats the second-place team in Group D, they will face the winner of Group F, Group 1-A, in the round of 16. Group A includes China, Kyrgyzstan, and Kazakhstan, while Group F includes Japan, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Afghanistan. At the moment, we’re favored to meet Japan.
Before that, they need to beat their qualifying opponents.
Meanwhile, Lim’s first opponent, India, met Cambodia on Nov. 19 and won 3-0.
