Many fans are wondering about the next plan of volleyball star Kim Yeon-koung. Last Sunday, she announced her retirement from international play after South Korea lost to Serbia in the bronze medal game in the Olympics.
However, 24 hours later, Kim was not sure about her future anymore. She returned to South Korea on Monday. According to an online casino directory, fans greeted the team at the Incheon International Airport.
The South Korean volleyball team did well during the Olympics. However, they were a victory away from earning the country’s first podium finish in women’s volleyball events since 1976. Also, Kim didn’t comment about her future with the national team.

The South Korean volleyball legend said it was early to determine whether she would retire from playing with the national team. According to an online casino forum, Korea Volleyball Association President Oh Han-nam wanted to talk with Kim after her initial comments about retiring.
Oh said that Kim dedicated a long time to playing volleyball for the nation. Also, he wishes for her to stay on the team. However, Oh respects Kim’s decision. Kim played in the local South Korean league last season. According to online slot machines providers, she will play for Shanghai Bright Ubest in China next year.
Kim played for three straight Olympics for South Korea. The nation reached the semis in two of them. In 2012, they also lost in the semifinals at the London Olympics. During that time, Kim was the leading scorer. So it was not a surprise that she earned the MVP award despite not winning a medal during the tournament. In Tokyo Olympics, Kim was second in scoring by earning 136 points.
