We beat Woori Bank again. How do you feel?
I’m so very happy. Woori Bank is a great team. This player and that player are all good, but today it was a tougher match because even (Go) Ara did well. When we won the last confrontation, (Park) Hyejin and (Choi) Lee Saem were absent. I won, but my opponent wasn’t normal. Today, Woori Bank is also happy to win with all the players playing. I think the players gained the confidence that they can do it.
You sprained your right ankle at the end of the 4th quarter. Is it okay?
sick. I had a bad Achilles tendon, but since I had been injured once in the previous situation, there was more pain. When I was briefly replaced, the players told me to come out (to the court) quickly. On the one hand, I felt that the players needed me, so I was very grateful.
