The V-League is experiencing a mega craze.
The Dodram 2023-24 V-League Women’s First Round match between Heungkuk Life and Jung Kwan-jang Red Sparks was held at Samsan World Gymnasium in Incheon on April 26. Kwanjang was down 0-2 in the set after losing the first and second sets, but took the third and fourth sets in succession to push the match to five sets.
In the final set, Kim Yeon-kyung and Yelena Mrazenovic (registered name Yelena) gave up match point to Heungkuk Life, but with their persistent focus, they won the match in deuce, and at 16-16, Megawatti Puttiwi (registered name Mega) and Giovanna Milana (registered name Gia) scored consecutive points to secure the victory. Before the third set, everyone favored Heungkuk Life, but against all odds, Jung Kwan-jang won the match.
At the end of the game with Jia’s attacking score, there was a player who shed hot tears. It was Mega. Mega collapsed on the court, hugging her face and sobbing with emotion. Her translator and teammates rushed to her side and wiped her tears away. Mega’s tears must have brought tears to the eyes of Jung Kwan-jang’s fans watching the match.
Many fans who watched the match wondered why Mega was crying. The main speculation was that she was crying because she had played against “Volleyball Queen” Kim Yeon-kyung and won the match. Megawati has said that world-class attacker Serbian Tiana Boskovic and Kim Yeon-kyung are her role models.
“When I asked Mega, she said she was moved by the way everyone on the team fought and didn’t give up until the end. I think she was moved to tears by that emotion.”
As such, Mega is gaining the attention of V-League fans. Mega, who joined the organization through the Asian Quarterly Draft, is the starting outside hitter for the Indonesian national team. She was a standout performer at the 2023 Asian Volleyball Confederation (AVC) Challenger Cup for women. Megawati was named the tournament’s Best Apogee Spiker. She has a strong attack and a powerful serve. Her offense is strong and her serve is powerful. It was said that she had a better offense than her foreign teammate Jia.
Mega is also a Muslim. She doesn’t eat pork at all. Most importantly, she wears a hijab. She is the first foreign player to wear a hijab on a V-League court. Mega is the center of attention on and off the court.
Her personality is no different. She’s cheerful and gets along well with domestic players. She doesn’t ask for special treatment because she’s a foreigner. She does all the same training as the domestic players. Even when it’s hard, she perseveres.
Head coach Ko Hee-jin said, “They have never been trained like this before. They have good character and follow the training well, so I am grateful as a coach.”토스카지노 도메인
An official from Jung Kwan-jang said, “He has a really good personality. He has a kind heart and is very nice. She is adapting well because her teammates are taking care of her so well.”
Mega has 73 points in three games with a 45.21% offensive success rate. She’s exceeding expectations. Mega is winning the hearts of her fans with her offense every game. She is definitely one of the most impressive outsiders so far, alongside GS Caltex’s Gisele Silva (real name Silva).
Jung hasn’t played spring volleyball since the 2016-17 season. She hopes to go to greater heights with Mega.
