Who is Steven van de Velde?

Steven van de Velde is a beach volleyball player who was born on August 8, 1994, in The Hague, Netherlands. The 29-year-old stands 6 ft 6 in (1.99 m) tall. 

Since 2016, he has been permanently registered on the UK’s s*x offender registry as a convicted child r*pist. Yes, this is what everyone remembers every time one takes his name. 

In August 2014, at the age of 19, Van de Velde went to Milton Keynes to have s*x with a girl he knew was just twelve years old, a report in the Mirror said. Evidence presented in court stated that he went to the victim’s home when her mother was away and took her virginity. 

In March 2016, after admitting to three counts of child rape, the beach volleyball player was sentenced to four years in jail. He was extradited from the Netherlands and found guilty at Aylesbury Crown Court.

A judge called his hopes of representing the Netherlands a “shattered dream,” but he was released from a Dutch prison after just a year and a half. 

Meanwhile, he has now revived his goal of competing in the Olympics and secured a place in the volleyball competition at the Paris Games alongside Matthew Immers.

Regaining his status as one of the best volleyball players in the world, the 29-year-old is currently a part of the 11th-ranked team in the world, which will visit Paris the following month. 

Is Steven van de Velde married?
