On Tuesday, December 12, Australian Counter-Strike team Grayhound announced the signing of Christopher “dexter” Nong. The 29-year-old re-joins the squad after four years as a replacement for Simon “Sico” Williams, who left the team earlier this week.

Dexter is no stranger to Grayhound. He represented the team from 2017 to 2019 before he left for Renegades, where he spent one year. After proving his worth in the Oceanic scene, dexter joined MOUZ and was most recently seen competing with Fnatic until November 2023, when the in-game leader got benched.


During his stints with MOUZ dexter has achieved moderate success. He helped MOUZ win Flashpoint Season 3 and qualify for PGL Major Stockholm 2021 and Intel Extreme Masters Rio Major 2022, where he made the semifinals but lost against the eventual champions, Outsiders (Virtus.pro).

Unfortunately, dexter hadn’t managed to achieve the same heights with Fnatic. With the Black & Orange, dexter has not placed higher than top eight across seven tournaments and was eventually let go from the team, who are currently undergoing major roster changes.

Dexter Replaces Sico


Dexter joins Grayhound just one day following the departure of Sico, who left the Australian team on Monday as one of the longest-serving members of the Australian squad.


“Happy to be back with my boys! Thought long and hard on this one to stay in EU or not, but in the end to develop my self back to where I know I am and improve the scene here I chose my original home”


Dexter is set to debut for Grayhound at the CS2 Thailand Invitational, which is set to kick off on Monday, December 18, 2023. Grayhound’s first match of the tournament is against Octagonal Disposition, who the Australian roster will play on the opening day of the event.

The tournament will welcome eight Counter-Strike 2 teams, who’ll fight for the lion’s share of the $50,000 prize pool. Of the eight invited teams, Grayhound are the only Australian squad, joined by ATOX Esports, MungYu Esports, NewHappy, Octagonal Disposition, SHOWSTOPPER, Steel Helmet, and Wings Up Gaming.
