The number of American players in Greece increases.
Olympiacos announced that Team USA attacker Hannes Daube had joined the Greek champion. This means that Daube’s teammate from the national team, Max Irving won’t be the only foreigner on Olympiacos’s roster next season.
Before arriving at Olympiacos, Daube (20) played from Newport Beach Water Polo Club. He attends the University of Southern California and has played for the USC Trojans. He won the 2018 NCAA Championships with the Trojans and was named the 2018 All-America First Team.
Since 2017, he has been playing for Team USA. Daube clinched the gold medal at the 2019 Pan American Games. He was part of Team USA, which finished 7th at the 2019 World Championships, etc.
Daube is Olympiacos 8th addition this summer, after Marios Kapotsis (Steaua), Thanasis Chrysospathis (Szentes), Achilles Grammatikos (Apollon Smyrnis), Max Irwing (Ydraikos), Stefanos Galanopoulos, Emmanouil Prekas (both returned from a loan in Ydriakos), and Giannis Syrmas, who was loaned to Glyfada.
