Kim Yeon-Koung hopes Korea gets consistency

Korea's players celebrate with a lot of enthusiasm after the 3-0 victory over Brazil, the Olympic defending champions

Kim Yeon-Koung, Player of Korea: I am not in great condition, but the other players are in great shape, so we played really well. That was the best game for Korea and we will try to play like this every time."

On her scoring feats including 84 points in the first three matches:
I really don't think much about that. Today was my lowest production and we still won, so the most important thing is to take the victory and hopefully get one of the medals,

Fernanda Rodrigues, Player of Brazil: They (Korea) played well. They didn't let us play our game, they attacked well. We did not have our best match today.
On the reason for losing to Korea and USA:
It is a combination of factors, we need to reduce the number of our errors.
Fabiana Claudino, Captain of Brazil: We tried to come back, but we only had errors and errors. We could have been much more aggressive.

Paula Pequeno, Player of Brazil: We made a lot of mistakes, but it is not time yet to panic. We know the situation is poor because we have lost the last two matches, but there is still time to correct our mistakes. We are still alive.

Sheilla Castro, Player of Brazil: We lost because of Korea's excellent blocking and the precision of their serves. We have just got to be both more energetic and aggressive in our play.
