An official from the volleyball world told ‘News1’ on the 17th, “Jung Ji-yoon, who was training with the national team, recently suffered an ankle injury during the landing process.”
“National team coach Cesar Hernandez and Hyundai E&C coach Kang Sung-hyun agreed that she could no longer train at the athletes’ village, so she will leave the Jincheon athletes’ village on the 18th,” the official explained.
On the afternoon of the 17th, when the team’s training session was released to the media, Jeong failed to train with the team and returned to the gym in a wheelchair after receiving medical treatment.
The official said, “His condition is not very good. However, the exact recovery period will be known after he receives a detailed diagnosis after being discharged from the hospital.”
Jeong’s departure is bad news for both the national team and Hyundai E&C. The national team is set to compete in the Asian Women’s Volleyball Championship, the Paris Olympic Qualifiers, and the Hangzhou Asian Games starting on the 28th.
Hyundai E&C is also facing a major setback in its plans for the new season if Jung’s return is delayed.
