KOR Head Coach
I am still not satisfied with my players' jump serves and service reception.
For better results, we have to receive or dig the volleid balls coming above the blocks from the opponents.
However I can find bigger hope for my setter and libero are getting better and better.
This Grand Prix is definitely a chance for us to prepare for the Olympic Games and we are still improving.

KOR Captain
The second set was very disappointed. If we got the set the results might be different.
The balls from the two setters KANG and KIM are getting easier and more quality controlled
When training we focus on blocking, service reception and strong service. And if we plus strong mental power I think we can get the medals in Athens.

CUB Head Coach and Captain
KOR played much better than they did in Thailand. I know that they are in the highest level in the World.
For the last 30 years, we have been using double setter system. We take advantage of our setters who can spike and block as well.
