The ‘Cuba Express’ is getting attention.
Apposite spiker Dalira Palma (24, Cuba) received favorable reviews at the Korean Volleyball Federation (KOVO) Women’s Foreign Player Tryout Day 2 evaluation match held on the 12th (Korean time) at Hassan Doan Sport Complex in Istanbul, Turkey. Even in the first evaluation match the day before, Palma made such a strong impression that 6 out of 7 club commanders mentioned her.
She also showed off her charm in the 2nd evaluation match. More than half of the coaches picked her as a player to watch. In a club preference survey conducted with videos before tryouts, Palma was ranked 10th. However, in the actual evaluation match, she showed more than that.
“I am very happy just to be here,” said Palma. It seems that he has created an opportunity to grow himself and show his play,” he said, “I am so happy that he was evaluated as a good player.”
She showed off her hot attack power, fast swing, and extraordinary sense of hitting. “It’s been about a month since the season ended,” said Palma. He is only training with weights. He’s not 100 percent in shape,” she gave herself a sober assessment. “If he trains normally, he will be able to show a better figure than he is now,” he said confidently.
The V-League has a high percentage of attacks by foreign players. Palma said, “Even in the recent (Swiss) league, I was responsible for the most offense in the team. It will be fine,” he stressed.
Some clubs evaluated that “Palma’s timid personality is regrettable.” “I’m shy off the court, but I’m free on the court,” said Palma. He enjoys being a different person when he plays or when he scores. He said that in time he will change a lot and we will be able to get along.”
In the meantime, he often heard stories about Korea from Cuban players who went through the V-League. Palma expressed her anticipation, saying, “The enthusiasm of the fans is amazing and it can be a good opportunity.”토스카지노
Among the seven women’s clubs, only Heungkuk Life Insurance re-signed with Yelena Mrazenovic (26, Bosnia/Serbia), and the players who participated in the tryout must catch the eye of the other six clubs. Palma said, “Lastly, I want to show one of my strengths, the serve. We will show a better image than the attacks so far.”
