      Captain Kim Yeon-koung of the women's national volleyball team will leave Korea on Saturday to return to her Turkish club, Eczacıbaşı VitrA.

      Kim sustained an abdominal injury during the Asian Olympic qualifiers in Thailand while successfully leading Korea to victory in all five of its matches to secure a ticket to this summer's Olympic Games in Tokyo.

      It will be the country's third consecutive Olympic appearance.

      She is expected to discuss her injury leave and rehabilitation schedule with the club.
