According to a report by Upcomer, GAM Esports jungler Đỗ “Levi” Duy Khánh is interesting in playing for a League of Legends Championship Series team.
The Vietnamese star is contracted with GAM till Nov. 15, but has confirmed he will play with the team throughout the VCS 2021 winter season ending on Dec. 31.
“I will finish 2021 with GAM in the VCS Winter tournament. During that time, I will still look for opportunities to compete abroad in 2022,” Levi said to Upcomer. “My goal is to win the tournament I’m participating in and attend MSI and Worlds.”
Levi originally competed in North America with 100 Thieves Academy in 2018 — briefly playing with the LCS lineup at that season's Rift Rivals tournament. Around the same time, he reached Rank 1 on the North American ladder.
Afterwards, Levi competed in the LPL with JD Gaming before returning to the VCS with GAM. With GAM he won multiple championships with the VCS, and represented the region at the 2019 League of Legends World Championship. He has previously competed in the 2017 iterations of Worlds and the Mid-Season Invitational.
Levi has not had the opportunity to compete at Worlds since. He is one of the many players impacted by COVID-19 effects on Vietnam. After a stellar performance in VCS 2021 Spring that saw GAM place first in both the regular season and Playoffs, VCS 2021 Summer was canceled because of issues with COVID-19.
The region also was unable to compete at Worlds 2021—the fourth international event Vietnam has been forced to skip. Levi was on the teams that qualified for Worlds 2020 and MSI 2021.
There has been no information released on LCS teams interested in pursuing Levi. He is considered a strong mechanical jungler, known for his skills with Lee Sin. He is one of the only Vietnamese players in history to reach Challenger Tier on the Korean servers.
