I’m finally stepping on the final stage I’ve been dreaming of.
On the 7th, the LPBA final of the ‘Crown Haitai PBA-LPBA Championship’, the last of the regular tour in the 2022-23 season, will be held at Bitmaru Broadcasting Center in Goyang.
The finals are now getting more attention than ever. This is because Kim Bo-mi (NH Nonghyup Card), who has been on the final stage for the first time since her professional debut, is about to have a big match with ‘Empress of Cambodia’ Slong Piabi (Blue One Resort).
Kim Bo-mi, the daughter of ‘PBA First Year Champ’ Kim Byeong-ho (Hana Card), debuted in the 2019-20 season and has played four seasons in the PBA alone. Of these, a total of 8 times including this tournament, 7 times only ended in the semifinals. If there are ‘four kings’ in the men’s PBA, Kim Bo-mi can be said to be the ‘four kings’.
Her father watched her win the trophy during her first season in the PBA, but her trophy luck rarely followed her own. She would have been indescribable for the feeling of having to turn around with the final stage in front of her eyes every time.
However, her grades this season ran the highest among the season report cards she has received so far. She came down from the survival round of 32 only once, and placed in the top 10 on all of them. The TS Shampoo Puradak Championship, High1 Resort Championship, Welcome Savings Bank Championship, and the current Crown Haitai Championship all made it to the semifinals.
Finally, on the 6th, Kim Bo-mi shed tears as she reached the first professional final by defeating Baek Min-joo (Crown Haetae), the runner-up of the High1 Resort Championship. The first set was a long game, but it felt good. She brought the game cautiously to 11-8 in 16 innings. In the 2nd set, Baek Min-joo returned a powerful 11-2, but Kim Bo-mi succeeded in turning the atmosphere around with a long hit, 11-2 in the 3rd set and 11-5 in the 4th set.
His opponent, Throng Piabi, made it to the final stage again seven months after the opening match. It is a somewhat difficult opponent for Kim Bo-mi, who made it to the first finals. In particular, it is unknown how strong Throng, who has recently had a chance to bounce back after poor performance, will show off. In particular, since Throng has a clear sense of her goal, there is a high probability that she will cling to the finals even more terrifyingly. 메이저사이트
The two met last season in the SK Rent-A-Car World Championship 2022 semi-finals. At that time, Throng won the set score 4-2 and advanced to the final. At that time, Throng took the 1st set and Kim Bo-mi overturned the 2nd and 3rd sets, but Throng took the 4th, 5th and 6th sets terribly.
Also, the two of them are constantly facing cues in the team league. Even if you don’t have any data about each other, it’s burdensome, but even if you know each other too well, your heart feels tight.
It is a difficult finale. Kim Bo-mi wouldn’t want to end her rise here. In her interview after the Team League Electric League, she said, “She has the confidence that she can do it if she just steps on the final stage.”
If Kim Bo-mi wins the trophy in this final, NH Nonghyup Card will have four champions who broke the crown this year, following Mamin Calm (Vietnam), Jo Jae-ho, and Kim Min-ah. Blue One Resort also wants to continue the victorious shouts of Kang Min-goo from the previous tournament with the momentum of Throng Piabi.
