We are properly warming up before the opening. Ikhbairi (Libya), who took the court wearing the uniform of Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance in the V-League last season and Hyundai Capital in the soon-to-be-opening 2023-24 season, is playing a key role as a starting striker in the national team.

Ikhbairi has not yet joined the Hyundai Capital squad. He was called up to the Libyan volleyball team and is participating in the African Men’s Volleyball Championship hosted by the Confederation of African Volleyball (CAVA). This competition is being held in Cairo, Egypt.

Libya, led by Ikhbairi, became a sensational team. They passed the group stage and advanced to the semifinals of the competition.메이저사이트

Ikhbairi is playing the role of Libya’s ‘main gun’ well. However, Libya’s storm stopped in the semifinals.

Libya lost 2-3 (25-18 15-25 35-33 22-25 11-15) in the semifinals against Algeria held in Hall 2 of the Cairo Stadium in Cairo, Egypt on the 12th (Korean time) in a close match that went to a full set. .

Although Libya lost, Ikhbairi performed well, scoring 37 points, the most of both teams combined. He also recorded two serve aces.

Algeria’s left and right twin guns of Hosni and Iken showed strength. Hosni had 27 points, the most in the team, and Iken had 24 points. Another outside hitter, Soualem, also contributed to the team’s victory by scoring 15 points.

Although Libya failed to secure a ticket to the finals, it will compete for third and fourth place against Cameroon on the 13th, aiming for its best performance ever in the competition.
