Georg Grozer in action against USA during
the Olympic Games in London
Germany may have exited last summer’s Olympic volleyball
tournament at the quarterfinal stage, but only after György
Grozer had left his mark on London. As Germany’s star player,
the Hungarian-born 28-year-old finished with his team’s best
stats for serving and blocking but it was his scoring prowess
that stood out more than anything – in particular, his 39-point
haul in the 3-2 pool phase victory over Serbia.
Grozer’s reputation keeps on growing
That went unsurpassed in London, though Grozer confides that he has
actually had even more productive days. “I scored 43 points in a match
in the national league in Poland, if I remember well.”
Prior to his post-Olympic switch to Russia’s Lokomotiv Belgorod, Poland
is where György – or Georg, as he is called in Germany – was playing
his volleyball, with Asseco Resovia Rzeszow. “The real Mecca for our
sport,” he says of the country as he recalls the packed hall in Rzeszow
where he helped his old club end a 37-year wait to win the national
championship. “They always create an atmosphere you just can’t find
anywhere else.”
