The International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) remained on the path of the guidelines established by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) regarding the permission for transgender athletes to compete in official competitions under its jurisdiction.

 

Medical commission of the FIVB met in Lausanne, Switzerland, to discuss anti-doping procedures, sports medicine, the promotion of a healthy lifestyle through volleyball and transgender athlete participation in the sport. On the meeting, the commission maintained the guidelines established by the IOC when it comes to the participation of transgender athletes.

The FIVB Medical commission emphasized on the issue of allowing transgender athletes to compete, for which they said it is sensitive, that it respects individual choice of a person but also wants to ensure a fair and equitable system of competition for all athletes.

As for national club competitions, it was left to each national federation to set rules for the participation of transgender athletes.

The most famous volleyball case of allowing the transgender player to compete is certainly the case of Tifanny Abreu. After undergoing a sex change, she first took part in an Italian women’s Division 2 last season while now, she is a member of the Brazilian women’s side Vôlei Bauru.

Recall what she said about the fact that some of the former and active volleyball players in Brazil are against her competing in the female competition in an exclusive interview to our website.

Kim Yeon-Koung for WoV - "I still didn't make any decisions for next season"

The Chinese volleyball fans love her. She is a superstar and a legend. She might not be the first Asian volleyball player to play in Europe, but she certainly gave notice to the world that Asian players can play in their leagues and are just as good and talented as well as great. She opens the doors of the European leagues wider for Asian players. Reply
