여자 배구 8강 터키상대로 준결승 진출

We now turn to the Tokyo Olympics with a lot of high stake events on the line for Team Korea.
For more, we turn it over to our Kim Do-yeon at the news center.
Do-yeon, let's start with volleyball...

Mark, just moments ago... the South Korean women's volleyball team beat Turkey to advance to the semis.
The game stretched into the fifth set and Captain Kim Yeon-Koung was the one to spike the match point to seal the nail-biting win.
The team will play the winner of Brazil or the Russian team in Friday's semi-final.
Now... a medal is within a reach... and South Korea's star player Kim has been very vocal about her desire to win one during her professional career.
The national icon famously returned to the South Korean league last year to help maintain her match sharpness when the Turkish league closed down due to COVID-19... which resulted in her taking a huge pay cut.
This is likely her last Olympics, so fans are praying for her success.
The team surpassed expectations in the group stage, beating Japan and the Dominican Republic on the way to the quarter-final.

How are these people employed for these jobs? Are they qualified? Their gestures, awkward pauses and weird accents omgod. Its like the 2000s.
