It was the best gift ever.
On the 25th, the Armed Forces Athletic Corps Commercial Basketball Team visited Hwayang High School in Yeosu, South Jeolla Province, for a five-on-five practice game as the final part of the Elite Secondary Basketball Talent Donation Programme (organised and hosted by the Korea Secondary Basketball Federation, Commercial).
Hwayango’s Yoon Jun-sik (193cm, F) said, “Thank you very much for coming to our school. I was able to have a good experience and learn more by being serious in the practice games. I feel that I want to grow into a good player like my brothers.”토토사이트
When the team got off the bus outside the school and passed through the main gate of Hualango, a loud cheer erupted from the school’s windows. In addition, the second-year students of Hualango actively complained to the school’s teachers and asked to watch the practice game. Not only did many students come to the gym, but also many teachers.
“The school is usually very interested in the basketball team,” said Yoon Jun-sik, laughing, “I think it’s because of Heo Hoon’s great popularity and to see his alma mater, Kim Nak-hyun.”
Earlier, on the 23rd, Hua Yang Go learned skills from the players at the Heungkuk Indoor Gymnasium. On the 24th, they learnt how to take care of their bodies from the physical fitness coach of the Commerce basketball team, Jung Sang-wook, who visited the school gym.
Yoon Jun-sik said, “My back and pelvis were uncomfortable during my usual workouts. It was good to learn posture correction and reinforcement exercises, and I learned exercises that I didn’t know about, such as the muscles used in basketball and proper weight training. It was good to be able to exercise more effectively in the future.”
Finally, he expressed his feelings on completing the dream-like talent donation.
Yoon Jun-sik said, “I’m very grateful to Commerce Basketball for coming to the school. There are not many opportunities for local teams to train and compete with professional players. When I heard about Commerce’s talent donation, I was really looking forward to it and wanted to do well and stand out. All three days and two nights are memorable, and I will definitely become a professional player to repay my brothers’ favour and have a good influence on younger players like them.”
