Miriam Sylla, the 21-year old member of the Italian national team, is facing a multi-year suspension from volleyball, after being tested positive for clenbuterol, report the media in Italy.

“It could have been caused by contaminated food. We are waiting for complete results to see the percentage of substance in Sylla’s body. I want to remind you that Sylla didn’t play in this game,” says the president of the Italian Volleyball Federation Bruno Cattaneo.

This is not the first case of using clenbuterol in Italy. Before the start of the Olympic Games in Rio last year, the beach volleyball player Viktoria Toth was tested positive. Also, the 36-year old player Marco Forni was also suspended because of being tested positive for this substance.

However, if this turns out to be true, Miriam Sylla will have to deal with multi-year suspension from volleyball...
