French middle blocker Le Roux signs at BR Volleys
CEV Champions League Volley 2021 - Men

Berlin, Germany, December 8, 2020. Kévin Le Roux successfully passed his medical check at the BERLIN Recycling Volleys on Monday. The French international has a CEV license already, which makes him eligible to play for the BR Volleys against ACH Volley LJUBLJANA in their #CLVolleyM season opener later today. Le Roux will wear jersey number 2 for the ten-time German national champions.

Le Roux drove more than 1000 kilometres in his private car at the weekend in order to join the BR Volleys team as quickly as possible. “I had a lot to transport and in the current situation I did not want to take any unnecessary risk of infection,” said the middle blocker, explaining his long road trip from Nantes to the German capital. The 31-year-old arrived in Berlin on Sunday and directly underwent a coronavirus test. On Monday, the medical check followed by BERLIN’s team doctor Oliver Miltner, who gave the French the green light. With this, all pieces have fallen into place.

Kévin Le Roux has been a French national player for many years, has appeared for his national team more than 200 times and qualified for the 2020 Olympic Games in the Max-Schmeling-Halle this past January. He obviously very much hopes to be among the players representing ‘Les Bleus’ at the postponed Tokyo Olympics in the summer of 2021.

Last season, Le Roux played in China for Beijing BAIC Motors. In the past few weeks, he was able to keep himself fit in Italy at Gas Sales Bluenergy Piacenza. Together with BR Volleys setter and new teammate Pierre Pujol, Le Roux won the European Championship title in 2015 and he became the best middle blocker in the FIVB World League twice in his career.

The globetrotter has played in France, South Korea, Turkey, Italy, Russia, Brazil and China. Now he is officially part of the Berlin squad and is eligible to play in the Bundesliga and CEV Champions League. “I am very happy to be here. The BR Volleys are an internationally respected club with an extremely professional organisation. Our team has the potential to win the national championship and compete in the CEV Champions League 2021 for a long time during this season. I would like to do my part to achieve these goals,” is how the 2.09-meter-tall middle blocker formulates the ambitions with his new club.
