Leo, who returned to the V-League in his 30s, boasts his strength. And his serving skills improved even more.

Leo put 11 sub-aces in the home game against KEPCO in the professional volleyball Dodram 2022-2023 V-League men’s division held at Sangnoksu Gymnasium in Ansan on the 16th.

The 11 serve aces are Leo’s most in a single game (previously 9) and tied for second place in the men’s division of the V-League. The highest record in this category is 15 made by Göregi Groser (then Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance) in a match against KB Insurance on January 17, 2016.

Thanks to Leo’s strong serve, OK Financial Group won a bloody battle against KEPCO with a set score of 3-2. Leo also put in 4 serve aces in a row in the 5th set 1-1.

As of the 16th, Leo reserved first place in this category with 0.964 serve aces per set. The record of second place Lincoln Williams (Korean Air) is 0.532 per set, and it is impossible to catch up with Leo in the remaining period.

Leo greatly surpassed himself.

Leo’s V-League record for the most serve aces in a single season was 0.561 per set in the 2012-2013 season.

The figure this season is as high as 0.403.

Leo, who we met after the game on the 16th, said that the reason for the rapid rise of the sub ace was “because he maintained his weight well and gained confidence.”

He said, “In the past, my serve was not accurate. When I tried to serve, I stepped on the end line and made a mistake, and sometimes I went out of line.” I lost, and the number of sub-aces increased,” he added.
