A.S. Volley Lube announces the renewal of Barthelemy Chinenyeze until 2027.  “Babar” did not let himself be seduced by the offers of six other first-tier teams. The Lube Volleyball and the 204 cm transalpine powerhouse are still in full idyll, the agreement is consequential.

Having arrived in Civitanova in 2022 as an Olympic champion, with the nomination of best in his role at the Tokyo Games, after a year as a protagonist in Milan, the tall Frenchman (born in 1998) has bewitched professionals and fans with his attacking ability and on duty after an initial period of time to settle in. Since then, Chinenyeze has never stopped, standing out for his exponential growth, to the point of becoming a backbone of Cucine Lube Civitanova, with whom he came close to winning two Super Cups and cultivated his Italian dreams until Game 5 of the Final series in Trento . In the current season the central Cucinero continues to shine and just last Sunday he received the award as Credem Banca MVP of January. Despite a leg injury suffered in the last SuperLega match against Cisterna di Latina, the athlete then forged ahead to return to the Champions League in Ankara by gritting his teeth and demonstrating attachment to the shirt.

Expectations for quality, power and excellent timing at the net were confirmed. His offensive attitude and remarkable speed of execution stand out in his personal background.

Chinenyeze is also a key element of the French national team, with whom he won the World League in 2017, and then won the Olympic Gold in 2021 and the VNL in 2022.
