Many people think that Corentin’s alias was after the film, RocKy played by Sylvester Stallone however it is not the case. When he was deciding which nickname he would use, he looked at his hamster, RocKy and it stuck with him.

For his drive and winning mentality, Vitality RocKy admits "I absolutely need a coach. In competition, everything is psychological. The coach is behind us and breathes important words as we play. If we get a goal or if we see that we are worried, it will be there to put us back in the rail. Everything else is about the player.”
