From Mannheim back to his old hometown

Ruben is an exceptionally polite and outgoing person who also can be very ambitious. This can be witnessed within practice when he almost destroys the rowing machine. Due to his studies of business and economics, the 25-year old intentionally moved to Mannheim. For his Olympic dream though, he then moved back to his hometown Hamburg. This dream did not seem unlikely, because already in the last season Ruben had his place in the the quad for sure. However, he could not prevail this season and will first take a break. Will he come back again?
