The Cuban Express wrote a new history.
OK Financial Group’s Leonardo Leyva Martinez (registered name Leo) wrote a record that will go down in the history of the V-League in a match against KB Insurance in the 3rd round of the Dodram 2022-23 V-League Men’s Division held at Uijeongbu Indoor Gymnasium on the 16th.
It is the 4th consecutive triple crown. So far, no player has ever won a triple crown in four consecutive games in the V-League. The previous 3 consecutive matches were the highest. Milos Kulapich (registered name Milos), who played for KEPCO45 (now KEPCO) in the 2010-11 season, achieved it for the first time, and Christian Padar (registered name Padar) played for Woori Card in the 2017-18 season and Hyundai Capital in 2018- It has been achieved once in 19 seasons. And Leo followed.
On the 2nd, Leo had 11 backs – 8 serves – 4 blockings in the Samsung Firefighting match, 7 rears – 6 serves – 3 blockings in the Woori Card match on the 6th, and 15 backs – 4 subs in the KEPCO match on the 11th. He recorded three dog-blocks and was in the process of recording a triple crown in three consecutive games.
Leo showed a good condition on this day as well. He added 2 back attacks – 2 serves in the 1st set only, and scored 8 points. His attack success rate was also as high as 50%. Leo’s performance was so great that it was regrettable that the team couldn’t bring the first set.
The long-awaited blocking score broke in the second set. Blocked Hwang Kyung-min’s 8-7 and Korean Min’s 15-15. By adding two back attacks to this, it has all the requirements for a back attack necessary for a triple crown. 안전놀이터
One serve and one block were lacking. In the third set, he could not score a serve or block.
In the 4th set, there was no problem filling the serve. I made a sub ace in 2-4. All that remains is blocking. Leo, who continued to score steadily in offense, blocked Hwang Kyung-min’s quick open at 10-9 and eventually set up a triple crown in four consecutive games.
It is the 11th individual record and the 5th individual record this season.
OK Financial Group won with a set score of 3-1 (22-25, 25-20, 25-21, 25-22) thanks to Leo’s great performance. Leo contributed to the team’s victory with 30 points including 3 blocks and serves.
