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.

 

After the game of the FIVB World Grand Prix between Italy and Brazil on August 6, she had been called to a doping test and after a month, the result has arrived – Sylla is positive for clenbuterol, a substance that is not a steroid, but is used by bodybuilders who want to reduce weight after a training cycle, especially women.

“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.

According to some experts, there is a chance that he took this substance without knowing it while eating some meat. Let’s wait for the final results.

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...

Zaytsev to join Milano in the summer? Club president: “We must carefully evaluate the pros and cons”

Re: @duh
yes when mikayhlov was injured, the young poletaev played for zenit during the russian championship the setter is grbic and the mvp is anderson. i followed zenit kazan. i know their history. what i mean is that zenit kazan can still dominate even without leon. even leon was named most of kazan MVP the club can still be a force to be reckoned with, without him.

Sirci is dreaming winning CHAMPIONS LEAGUE and put PERUGIA in WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS stage like LUBE does to attract more SPONSORSHIPS and INVESTMENT. SIRCI thought HIRING Ivan Zaytsev can bring PERUGIA, Champions League Trophy and a Ticket to World Club Championships.

Sirci don't think about that. he is dreaming of LEON so no matter what IVAN has to leave. Russell and Atanasijevis contract until 2019 so the only player he need to release is IVAN. Reply

ROU W: Alba Blaj, Stiinta Bacau and CSM Bucuresti celebrated new wins

The Romanian Volleyball Federation is continuously breaking their own rules. Against the rules, for the game Alba Blaj – Penicilina the guest was the host, the same as in the first half of the championship. This is just another bit of the perennial corruption inside FRV! Reply

Zaytsev to join Milano in the summer? Club president: “We must carefully evaluate the pros and cons”

Re: @dee jae69 what the actual fuck? You really believe Zenit Kazan can still dominate without Wilfredo Leon? Child, do you know the history of Zenit Kazan before Leon? And do you know that they were just recently thrashed by Belogorie and Petersburg? lmao

I don't get why Sirci should let Zaytsev leave. This is his chance to make Perugia
attract future players to their team. He is Italy's superstar and a true Perugian at birth.

We also have to consider the strength of reception of Russell and Leon together. Zaytsev brings insurance that if the pass can be minimum. There's Zaytsev who can receive as opposite. There's not a lot of opposites that we could consider complete as a player. Zaytsev is one of those rare breeds. Letting him go will be the greatest mistake of Perugia. Reply
