The Bulgarian male volleyball player Ivaylo Velikov has been suspended for doping.


A 29-year-old middle blocker Ivaylo Velikov was tested positive for doping, two weeks ago, both Bulgarian and Belgian media confirmed.

Velikov, the player of the Belgian top division side VBC Waremme, was suspended by his club and returned home.

Ivaylo has taken a substance that he should not have used. We have a very strict medical staff, but Velikov also consulted with Bulgarian doctors who have prescribed him a medicine that is banned in Belgium. He is a good guy and he used it unintentionally, but the club decided to part with him and Ivaylo returned to Bulgaria on Monday,” Waremme head coach Dimitri Piraux said.
