Having successfully completed their national mission, now is the time for Korea’s top stars to focus on the goal of winning the 2023 World Championship at home at the end of this month.
Korea convincingly won the Gold Medal in League of Legends at the Asian Games without losing a single game. Not only head coach kkOma and six athletes through special selection and training, but also the analysts accompanying the Korean team also received a “rain” of compliments for their efforts and dedication. .
Accordingly, Zefa and Khan are the people who have indirectly contributed to the team’s highest achievements. They also traveled with the Korean team to Hangzhou for five consecutive days of competition at the region’s largest sporting event. “I participated in the Asian Games as an analyst for the League of Legends team and worked hard. I feel like I have been rewarded with a gold medal. I am grateful to the athletes, coaches and other analysts who worked and helped me” – said Zefa.
Zefa’s colleague, Khan, also shared a few words about his first time taking on a completely new role. “I am happy that the athletes have been rewarded for their hard work. I accompanied and helped them as best I could. But I still don’t know what the athletes’ views are. However, I think it will be useful and I’m happy with it all. I am grateful to the Korean Electronic Sports Association for their help. At the same time, I am grateful to the coaches and analysts who worked hard with me as well as the fans who supported me,” Khan told the media.
Khan said his main task is to closely follow the actions and actions in the match of Zeus – the top line of the Korean team. In many interviews before and after winning the gold medal, every time he had the opportunity, Zeus publicly expressed his gratitude to Khan. Zeus said that working with experienced and accomplished seniors was a valuable experience. Khan seemed a bit embarrassed: “I wonder if I will be of much help to Zeus. He is a very good player but we talked about how to make him a little stronger than he is now.”
For Zefa, this is the second time he and the Korean team attended the Asian Games. Previously, he was the coach of this country’s national team at ASIAD 18 in Indonesia five years ago and won the Silver Medal after losing to China in the Final. With the determination to win gold at all costs in Hangzhou, Zefa and the whole team were satisfied. “Last time, I won the silver medal, but this time I am determined to win the gold medal. I did it with the mindset of never giving up. I prepared with that mindset and fortunately, I feel happy because my efforts seem to have paid off” – Zefa shared.
The two analysts – who have successfully accomplished the set goals of the Korean League of Legends national team since working closely with the athletes for about a month – also sent their wishes to the team. “Because this is my first time being a member of the coaching staff, the heavy work at first made me feel pressured. Anyway, I’m grateful to the coach for believing in me and calling me. In some ways, it’s the best ‘Golden Spoon start’ you can get as a manager. I think it’s a fun experience watching the matches and chatting with the great players. Congratulations to the discharged sergeants!” – Khan was excited.
Finally, Zefa smiled and closed the interview: “It was a great experience to witness the best players in Korea (competing and winning gold medals). I also feel like I’ve been very successful. Now, I will have fun watching them compete at Worlds.” Indeed, Faker, Chovy, Ruler, Kanavi, Keria and Zeus will all be opponents at the Swiss Round of Worlds 2023 starting on October 19. For the first time, the biggest League of Legends tournament of the year returns to Korea after five years of waiting. It is expected that there will be many heroic scenes that cannot be missed because no one wants to stand on the sidelines and watch their opponents lift the prestigious Summoner’s Cup.
