Missing out on the medals from any major international competitions since the 1972 Olympic silver, the German men’s national team has improved in recent years and must now be seen as a medal contender again. The team finished 5th at the London 2012 Olympic Games and repeated the feat in the 2012 World League. In 2014 Germany wrote history by winning its first medal (bronze) at the World Championships in 44 years after the 1970 gold. The successful period under the leadership of head coach Vital Heynen continued in 2015, as the team won the gold medal at the inaugural 2015 European Games. At the 2013 CEV European Championship, Germany finished 6th. The team strives for another success story at EuroVolley 2015 aiming for its first medal in the history of this competition. It is now ranked #10 in the world and #6 in Europe.
