Ukranian CS legend Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko has been chosen as the IEM Katowice 2020 trophy bearer, according to an announcement from IEM on their Twitter

The 32-year old retired from competitive CS:GO in September 2019 after the BLAST Pro Series Moscow event. Zeus is often deemed to have one of the best tactical minds in all of CS. He has hoisted an IEM trophy twice in his career and won a Major in 2017

Zeus reminisced on his career in an interview with IEM after he was chosen to bear the trophy: 

Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko

At IEM Season IV our greatest rivals were Fnatic, we played in different groups. We knew they were very strong, they'd already won IEM before and they were defending their title. It was difficult for me to even imagine beating them but I analyzed how they play Inferno and noticed their pattern. I made up a new round which we called IEM. In the final Inferno was the decisive map, we used that round against them and it led us to the victory. I remember it vividly and I'm happy that the IEM round helped us win.

IEM Katowice 2020 is set to start on Monday, February 24, and run all week until Sunday, March 1
