  PLAYER PROFILE

Kwang-Hee Choi
 
 

 

 

Korea’s captain Kwang-Hee Choi has been a member of the national team since 1995 becoming one of their most capped players. She has been a mainstay of the team and more recently taken on the responsibility of captaining the team. Although relatively short in Volleyball terms at 174cm she makes up for it with her powerful attacking arm and a wise head but while her offensive game is a strong part of her game, Choi has the ability to play an excellent all round game having originally played as a libero. Typically agile and quick, she is a role model for all budding Korean women who want to play Volleyball.

Choi, 29, has competed in four World Grand Prix’s, two Olympic Games, two World Cups and a World Championship and over that time her leadership skills for Korea are second to none, proving to be a vital link between the experienced members of this Korean side and the up and coming youth.

With Korea, ranked eight in the world, threatening to break into the top five on the FIVB world rankings, the leadership of Choi has always been instrumental in their progress.

This year’s World Grand Prix will be another tournament where Choi will lead a determined Korean side, which will definitely in with a chance of progressing past the preliminary rounds.
