Brazil Men’s Volleyball National Team member Rodrigo Leão “Rordiguinho“ failed a doping test at the 2019 Pan-American Games in Lima, Peru, Bruno Voloch revealed in his blog at Estadão Esportes.

 

The 23-year-old Brazil National Team player Rordiguinho was caught using the illegal substance in the anti-doping test held during the Pan-American Games in Lima, Peru, a month ago, Bruno Voloch published in his blog.

Sada Cruzeiro Vôlei outside hitter is suspended preventively for 30 days. Rodriguinho, allegedly, used a dietary supplement containing a banned substance, whose name is not yet disclosed, without informing the national team’s coaching staff.

Brazil won the bronze medal at the Pan-American Games, losing semifinals to Cuba. The “Seleção“ sent “B“ team to the tournament, coached by Renan Dal Zotto’s assistant Marcelo Fronckowiak, because the Pan-American Games were played practically at the same time as the International Olympic Qualifier.

Very irresponsible by coach Heynen! Team could of get trouble if someone would get injured in that set. You have only 6 substitutions allowed. Reply

POL M: Heynen criticizes EuroVolley format – “It’s not good for Volleyball”

Re: @~sadaf
Issue of his statement was that he asks for restricted, limited participation of NTs, due to of absence of tight matches...Moreover he had used the argument - results 3:0. So that I have used the statistics from other competitions, where should have been much more tight matches - like VNL, World Championship, due to of selection criteria . ( I did not treat the formula of VNL at all... )
The results of this small analysis are interesting, which I did not expected - see my previous comments. Remarkable indication is that the in final phases of these tournaments where had competed the strongest NTs, which should have been on the similar/same level, the percentage of matches which had ended 3:0 is higher as in a prelimenary phase, which is also pretty high. Especially when these NTs should have been the best in the world...

However a different question is - why was increased the numbers of NTs at European Championship?
Perhaps I will try to make some remarks on one aspect of that later on, from a volleyball fan point of view.. Reply

[@John Doek] Everyone criticised VNL, Heynen being one of them, when its formula was introduced. It is mainly the fault of VNL that there is so little time to rest and prepare for bigger tournaments in the second part of national season, there is too much matches to play. Reply
