Elisabeth Testifies to ‘Volleyball in Korea’… ‘I don’t even remember how much I hit’

“If you go to this team, you have to hit (spike) 1,500 times, and if you go to that team, you have to hit it 1,000 times. If you come to our team, you only have to hit it 500 times,” former coach Choi Tae-woong joked.

It was a statement that acknowledged the “secret volleyball” that was already known among foreign players seeking to advance to the V League.

The V League, which does not have many domestic striker resources, sometimes operates to drive attacks to foreign players depending on team circumstances.

Some players testified that it was difficult to play this way.

Elisabet Ine Barga (Hungary, registered name Elisabet), who played for Pepper Savings Bank in the 2021-2022 season and KGC Ginseng Corporation in the 2022-2023 season, chose to transfer to the Polish league instead of applying for a V League tryout this season.

Elizabeth, who currently plays for KPS Chemic Police in the Polish Women’s League, said in an interview on the league’s official website on the 14th (local time), “I can’t even remember how many balls I hit in the Korean league because there were so many balls,” adding, “I knew what my role was as a striker anyway, and I always did my best for the team.”

Elizabeth was the No. 1 overall pick, wearing a new team Pepper Savings Bank uniform, ranking sixth in scoring (598 points) and fourth in attack success rate (41.45%) in the 2021-2022 season.

The “secret volleyball” that Elizabeth appealed in an interview came in the 2022-2023 season, the second season of the V League.

At that time, Elizabeth scored 1,15 points, almost 100 points ahead of the 879 points of the second-ranked Letizia Moma Vasoko (registered name Moma, GS Caltex at the time).

It is the third time that the women’s team has surpassed 1,000 points in the 2011-2012 season after Madelaine Montagno Caicedo (KGC, registered name Montagno, 1,76 points) and Joyce (KGC, 1,9 points) in the 2013-2014 season, and it is the second place in a single season.

Elizabeth was overwhelmed just by the attack possession.

Elizabeth’s attack share, which was 35.71% at Pepper Savings Bank, rose to 41.30% at KGC, ranking overwhelmingly first in the league.

The No. 1 offensive share in the women’s division was 54.46 percent of KGC Joyce in the 2013-2014 season.

“In the V League, a team is formed in a way that one or two players lead most of the attacks,” Elizavet said. “In contrast, in the Polish league, even though Apogit Spiker attacks heavily, attacks are distributed among multiple players and attacks are carried out in various ways.”

Elizabeth’s attack share in the Polish league this season is 21.51%, which is half that of last season when she played in the V League.

Elizabeth added, “Unlike being abused in Korea, I’m glad I didn’t feel that way here.”
