Kim Cheol-Yong
Kim Cheol-Yong is in the middle of his third campaign in charge of the Korean team after starting at the beginning of January, 2003 and following stints from 1993 to 1996 and 1999 to 2000.

He will need all that experience to see him through a time where the eighth-ranked team in the world is going through a period of rebuilding.

The 49-year-old is a stalwart of Korean volleyball and has the pedigree, particularly in the Korean domestic league where he lead his club side LG Caltex-Oil to nine consecutive Super League titles and a run of 82 successive games undefeated, but it won't be an easy task having to shape a squad renowned for its tenacity and spirit but lacking in genuine height.

After already having worked with a young squad at the Sydney Olympics the eighth place result saw Cheol-Yong replaced but his work with Korea's dominant club side was too good to ignore and hence another term at the helm.
