A year ago, Agnieszka Korneluk (who performed under her maiden name Kąkolewska) didn’t attend the season’s most important event. The coach at the time, Jacek Nawrocki, did not decide to take her to the European Championship, although she previously played in the Nations League. Later on, Korneluk had a great season in the league with Grupa Azoty Chemik Police and was the best blocker in the TAURON League. Now he continues his very successful performances in the national team. Interestingly, after the points are settled, it presents a unique celebration, reminiscent of players gliding across the field after they score a goal. – I have such festivities that are only for matches, because my knees and thighs will not hold any more – the heart of our team laughed. It gives a simple recipe for an effective mass. – Work, work and work again – adds Korneluk.
In the match against the Americans, from the second group, the Polish women began to repel the attacks of their opponents, and Korniluk had two points, because in this element she was also supported by Camila Witkowska, second in the middle, Magdalena Stysak and Olivia Różański. – All we missed in the match we lost against Serbia was in the match with the United States. We were accompanied by one hundred percent focus and positive motivation after the defeat the day before. It is said that you play as your opponent allows, but that’s what it was like in this match. We made a contribution to the fact that it was difficult for opponents to play and maybe they cut our minds too – says Korneluk.
The Polish women advanced, although the start of the match was not good and the Americans started the first set with a 5-0 lead. – This is another meeting, and we do not start well, but we can get up and it is useful. Even if you look at the score from the corner of his eye, you have to fight for every ball, says the middle ball.
For the White and Reds, not only is the sporting aspect of this victory important and overcoming the 12-year failure to beat the American women, but also the awareness of the possibility of an equal fight with the best teams in the world. , like the Olympic champions from Tokyo. – After our defeat against Serbia, the fans had doubts, but in the end we managed to break through. In the end, we showed ourselves that not only can we fight on an equal footing with a competitor at the highest level, like Turkey or the Dominican Republic, but that we can win with them. We prove to ourselves that we are moving forward – says Kornelock.
Before the match against the United States, Polish women had to face health problems, because many of them caught a cold, but nevertheless managed to defeat the Olympic champions. – We have a virus, but there is no point in discussing it, but the focus is on the best possible preparation for the match – confirms the position of the Polish national team.
The victory with the Americans opened the door to the quarter-finals for the Poles. But on the way, they still had to beat the Germans and Canadians. – We have two difficult matches ahead, otherwise the game will start as a favourite, and differently as a team that does not have to do anything. Canada and Germany are playing very well – says Kornelluk.
Will Polish women join these matches after the best match of the season? – I hope the best is still ahead – the volleyball player ends.
Paoui Zagomny has been judged for sports since he was a child, and the only thing he regrets is the fact that he won his first medal in the national team at the age of 29. As he claims, it was Raul Lozano who gave him a second life, which he used to the limit, leaving the stage As an athlete.
