“I thought I was dying for nothing….”
For the second year in a row, Im Sung-jin (25, KEPCO) smiled on his birthday.
Born on Jan. 11, 1999, Lim led the Power to a 3-0 victory over Samsung Fire at Suwon Indoor Stadium on Jan. 11, scoring 14 points with a 60 percent attack success rate. This included two blocking points and three service points. Since she had three digs, she could have gotten the triple crown (three digs, serve, and block) with one block, 바카라사이트 but she fell one block short.
I was also lucky. In the first and second sets, her opponent’s serve was hit and recorded as an ace.
“I was lucky from the start, and I felt like I was on a roll. I knew something good was going to happen,” she smiled.
A match on her birthday. “My first thought was that I wanted to win on my birthday,” says Lim. I wanted to make sure that I didn’t suffer on my birthday for nothing, but I think the heavens helped me. I’m going to have a happy birthday because I got to play with Suhun.”
A year ago, Lim received a gift when the team ended its nine-game losing streak. The team had won on the 10th, a day earlier, so he was able to enjoy his birthday in style. “I think the team was struggling then, too. It was the same last year, and I feel like I have good birthday energy this year.”
He was also hit with a hot ‘birthday bread’. He was hit in the face by an attack during the game. “I was hit in the forehead, and it felt like my skull was shaking. I got hit a lot with birthday buns, but I got hit on the court too,” she laughed.
However, the team was disappointed that they allowed a 10-point lead in the second set to slip away. “When we were ahead, I felt like we let our guard down and played a little bit complacent. We need to watch out for that. Even if we are ahead, we should try to finish the game faster,” she reflected.
