Suji Han at GS Caltex taking on her first Bloqueen challenge at the age of 35

At the age of 35, she dreams of becoming her first block queen. GS Caltex middle blocker Han Su-ji stood tall as the wall of Jangchung.

GS Caltex won a set score 3-2 in the home game against KGC Ginseng Corporation held at Jangchung Gymnasium in Seoul on the 9th. The highest scorer was MoMa (30 points), but Han Su-ji was the first contributor. Han Su-ji, who caught 4 blocks in the first set alone, blocked 8 attacks that day. Most records in one game. In particular, she blocked KGC’s main gun Elisabeth’s spikes 5 times.

Han Su-ji said, “I wasn’t greedy for blocking. In the last 3 rounds, I was beaten by Elisabeth and I thought, ‘What’s wrong?’. He studied Elisabeth’s movements and timing while watching her video.” 토토

The taste of Han Suji’s hand is frighteningly sharp. By catching 0.788 per set, he is sprinting for first place, beating former national representatives such as Yang Hyo-jin (Hyundai E&C), Jeong Dae-young (Road Corporation), Kim Su-ji (IBK Industrial Bank of Korea), and Bae Yu-na (Road Corporation). There is also a good chance that he will reach No. 1 in blocking for the first time since his debut. Han Su-ji smiled, saying, “The battle for team rankings is fierce, so whenever I check the record, I also look at the blocking ranking.”

Han Suji started playing volleyball in the 4th grade of elementary school. However, his ‘center career’ is only 7 years old. This is because she has been the setter since middle school, following her older sister Han Eun-ji. A tall (1m83cm) setter with good blocking, he was selected as the first overall pick in the 2006 draft and continued to play an active role.

However, he suffered from thyroid cancer and suffered a slump, and at the suggestion of director Seo Nam-won, he tried to transform into a middle blocker. Although he is not tall compared to his other players, his blocking ability has improved over the years. Han Su-ji is content with playing as a middle blocker even though she is “not good at attacking”.

Han Su-ji also challenges the record. Suji Han received the setter award for the 09-10 season. And he has the potential to win the Best 7 Middle Blocker this year. No player has ever won awards for both setter and middle blocker.

Han Su-ji took over as captain following last season. When Oh Ji-young was traded to Pepper Savings Bank, Han Su-ji became the best in the team. Director Cha Sang-hyun, who brought Han Su-ji to the trade in 2019, is also highly trusted. Director Cha praised, “As the captain and the eldest sister, she is leading the team well.” Han Su-ji, the only member of the team born in the 1980s, laughed, saying, “It’s difficult to have a conversation because it’s the MZ generation.”

In the V-League, only numbers 1 to 20 could be used. However, from this season, he became free to use up to 99 times. Han Suji, who used to wear number 1, chose number 34. It was a combination of the number 3 he used in school and the number 4 her husband used in the basketball club. Han Su-ji said, “Her husband teased that it was the number used by Shaquille O’Neal.” O’Neill is a legendary center who played an active role in the NBA. He even ranked first in blocked shots. The meaning is different, but blocking as a center is the same as Han Su-ji.

Before the opening, GS Caltex was considered one of the top three along with Hyundai E&C and Heungkuk Life Insurance. He also reached the top in the cup competition held in the summer. However, it was sluggish at the beginning of the season. However, as the team gradually stabilizes, they are fighting fiercely for third place. Han Su-ji expressed her desire for spring volleyball, saying, “Recently, my grades were good, and I had a good cup competition, so my morale was high, but there were many losses, so the atmosphere subsided. But as I won one game after another, it got better.”
