Edouard Rowlandson back in the game after two years!
2018 CEV Beach Volleyball Satellite - Montpellier

Montpellier, France, August 30, 2018. Edouard Rowlandson, who is now 30 years old, has returned to the international Beach Volleyball stage. He did not participate in any competition for two years and he is now playing at the FIVB 1-Star/CEV Satellite in Montpellier, where on Thursday, together with partner Olivier Barthélémy, he finished first in his pool to secure a spot in the quarterfinals.

Together with former partner Youssef Krou, Rowlandson was a force to reckon with even on the World Tour. “It has only been two months since I started training again after stopping with competitive sport for two years,” says the French player born in Luxembourg.
“Today I realise that I have been missing Beach Volleyball and competition,” he continues. “I am committed to working hard in order to get back to high-level sport. Even if I stopped with Beach Volleyball for two years, I see that the feeling and the chemistry is still there, also from a technical standpoint. I am still missing the rhythm of the game and competition. I have to play against some of the top teams in order to get back to the level I had in 2016.”

For now, let us see how far Rowlandson can get in Montpellier, which is the first tournament where points count towards qualification for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
