Tim “nawwk” Jonasson is returning to the Ninjas in Pyjamas starting lineup the organization has revealed. nawwk had been out of action during the teams last two matches due to medical reasons.
“It feels really good to be back in business. Something that I’ve learned is that it’s important to take care of your body and have a healthy lifestyle, and I’m happy that NiP gave me some time off to focus on myself,” the 22-year-old said in the official press release. “We’re all very motivated about being back together to continue our journey to become the world’s best.”
nawwk was last in action prior to his September 16 step down from the lineup. Björn “THREAT” Pers, the teams coach, had stepped in for the final two group stage matches in ESL Pro League Season 12 as the team was no longer able to make the playoffs.
Joining the team from GamerLegion in January, nawwk has had an impressive run with the side which has allowed them to put up some solid results in recent outings. His return should allow them to continue to improve upon that groundwork.
The Chief Operating Officer of NiP had the following to say regarding nawwk’s time away and drive to get back into action.
“I am incredibly happy to see Tim back already. He has shown a tremendous will to learn, and approached this situation with an open mind, allowing the performance team to fully support him and come out much stronger. It’s a huge kudos to both Tim, and the abilities of our performance team. I am genuinely proud of the work they’ve done.”
