The big point of attraction was the Handball World Cup in January: Congo cyclist Gauthier Mfombi drew attention to his official stature standing at 1.92 meters and 110 kilograms.
Then he progressed to become a giant cult with his sayings. It was first announced that he would steal his headband in the match against Danish superstar Mikel Hansen. He later referred to himself as “Shaq des handball”, reporting NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal 2.16m tall and 150km tall to Mvumbi via Instagram.
Thanks to this video message, “El Gigante” Mvumbi has now got a new job. He is now so popular in the USA that the Detroit Handball Club appoint him an ambassador. Mvumbi’s Mission: The cult giants are supposed to promote handball, which is still not very popular in the United States.
“I am very happy that I will be working with Detroit Handball Club to support the development of the sport of handball in the United States,” the 26-year-old wrote on Instagram.
Mfombi, who is currently still playing in Ligue 4, has to take a step forward when it comes to sport. He is in talks with several clubs and will soon announce his second new employer, according to the sect giant. (cm)
