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.

POL M: Young Australian coach Reynolds will command Jastrzębski next season

Many Strength and Conditioning Coaches/Scoutman are trying to get into coaching. Due to their lack of experience and knowledge, at first, they take a major pay cut in comparison to actual volleyball coaches. Currently, coaching jobs are paying very little, even in the top leagues, and some of the experienced coaches are not taking jobs for 25.000-40.000 EUR, knowing that demands are just as high as before when they were making double of this salary. Unfortunately, club leaderships see coaches as a disposable matter and therefore keep dropping salaries because there are candidates that will take these jobs. I am not here to judge, just to describe some of the dynamics around this profession. Reply

POL M: Young Australian coach Reynolds will command Jastrzębski next season

Interesting trend, that some coaches who specialised on physical training, some who never played volleyball on top level, became pretty successful volleyball coaches. It can be observed in some menś and women teams. It reflects a situation that volleyball has become a very physical sport. Even the world champion country, which in past had taught others, needs coaches from abroad who come into this category. Reply
