Richard Peter joins RSV Lahn-Dill

As the talks to Richard Peter were likely to reach an agreement, the management of RSV Lahn-Dill informed Hausamann that his contract would not be renewed. "We never take such a decision easily", says manager Andreas Joneck, "and Nicolas is a great sportsman and truely became a friend. But it doesn´t make sense, neither for him nor us, to have three class 2.5 players on the roster."
Richard Peter, two-times Paralympic champion, is the third Canadian player to join the team of RSV Lahn-Dill. Richard started playing wheelchair basketball at the age of 15, and in 14 years with the national team, he won more than 200 caps for Canada, giving him lots of experience and routine to lead a team.

"We took our time to look for a player who helps us to improve our team, and we’re very proud to welcome Richard, a real world-class athlete, to our team" says manager Andreas Joneck. Richard Peter is a class 2.5 player for guard and forward position and will join the team after competing in the Paralympic basketball tournament. After winning the gold medal in 2000 and 2004 Team Canada is determined to win a historical three-peat in Beijing.

Richard Peter was born in Duncan, Vancouver Island, in Canada’s British Columbia province. He’s a distiinguished political activist for the Cowichan First Nation and won the "Tom Longboat Award" for being the best Canadian Aboriginal athlete in 2000 and 2004. RSV Lahn-Dill is very proud to welcome this  excellent and extraordinary sportsman for the upcoming season.
