Asan Woori Bank coach Wi Sang-woo, who became the first coach in women’s professional basketball history to reach 300 wins, expressed his gratitude to the players.
Woori Bank, led by coach Wi Sung-woo, won 78-70 in a home game against Yongin Samsung Life Insurance held at Yi Sun-sin Gymnasium in Asan, South Chungcheong Province on the 25th.
Coach Sangwoo Wi, who made his managerial debut at Woori Bank in 2012, achieved his 300th regular season win with this victory, setting a record for the first 300 wins in the history of the Women’s Korea Basketball League (WKBL). 메이저-토토사이트
Excluding the coach above, this is an unrivaled record as no other coach has achieved 200 wins.
In women’s basketball, each team plays 30 regular league games per season, so it is not an exaggeration to say that a gap of more than 100 wins means that no one can catch up for the time being.
On this day, interest within the group was so great that Lim Jong-ryong, Chairman of Woori Financial Group, visited the stadium and stayed until the end of the game to congratulate Manager Wi.

In a TV broadcast interview after the game, Coach Wi was asked how he felt about his 300th win, and he said, “Actually, I don’t know how I feel. I’ve been playing for a long time, so I achieved (300 wins), but I’m grateful that it was a record achieved thanks to the players’ hard work.” He expressed his feelings.
Regarding the secret to consistently achieving good results since taking office as the head coach of Woori Bank, Coach Wi replied, “There is nothing special, we always practice as if it were real play,” and added, “The players may have a hard time, but I think that comes out in the game.”
Also, when asked who he was thankful for other than the players, he expressed his affection for his wife, saying, “My wife, who always supports me hard from behind.”
At this time, the players were preparing ice and water around the interview, and then they all poured their congratulations to Coach Wi.
In particular, Park Ji-hyun, who is famous for getting scolded by Director Wi a lot, celebrated excessively by throwing ice into Director Wi’s shirt top.
As the players’ ‘ice baptism’ did not end, Coach Wi shouted, “Stop it!”
Coach Wi said, “It is especially thanks to the fans who support us that we have set this record,” and added, “The executives and staff of Woori Bank are also showing a lot of interest, and we will repay you with better games in the future.” 토토사이트 추천
