On the 21st (local time), Korean Air defeated Bayanghongor (Mongolia) 3-0 (25-21, 25-23, 25-18) in the 7th and 8th place match held at Isa Sports City Stadium in Manama, Bahrain. .

With this, Korean Air finished the tournament with 4 wins and 3 losses. They advanced to the quarterfinals with 2 wins and 1 loss in the group stage, but only 1 win and 1 loss in the quarterfinals. After that, they received the final 7th place report with 1 win and 1 loss in the 5th to 8th place match.

The results did not live up to expectations, but it was a competition in which the candidates were able to play their part. Korean Air coach Tommy Tilikhainen employed an irregular tactic that day, appointing Lee Joon, who had been playing as an outside hitter, as an apposite spiker. Jeong Jin-hyeok took over as the setter.

In the first set, Jeong Jin-hyeok recorded 3 consecutive serve aces with a plotter serve. Then, at the set point, Jeong Jin-hyeok’s serve led to Bayanghongor’s room, and he won the first set.

Korean Air took the 2nd set, and Jeong Jin-hyeok again put in a serve ace in the 3rd set. Against Bayanghongor, whose receiving was faltering, Korean Air won the set easily with a 7-point lead, winning the final game of the tournament.

Kwak Seung-seok, who served as captain for the first time after his professional debut, expressed his feelings after the game, saying, “It’s good to win the last game and reap the beauty of the end.” He continued, “I had a lot of things to take care of,” and “I had to look at the team atmosphere, and I had to be in charge of communication between the coaching staff and the players.”

He also praised Lee Joon, who was very active during the tournament. Kwak Seung-seok evaluated, “(Lee) Jun-yi is originally a player with good offensive power. He has accumulated many opportunities and experiences in this tournament, and he must have felt a lot while playing the game.” “If he complements them in upcoming training sessions, he will be a better player,” he advised.
