The International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) once again refused to comment on the topic related to the suspension of Russian athletes that includes volleyball players and national teams from this country.


When the information of a possible suspension of Russian athletes, including volleyball players, first appeared, the FIVB didn’t want to comment on the topic until the process is over. Even now, when the World Anti-Doping Agency determined doping non-compliance with their Russian colleagues (RUSADA) and imposed a four-year ban from competing to athletes from this country, the FIVB avoided commenting on the case.

“The FIVB will not comment on the RUSADA compliance situation until the full legal process, including all appeals, has concluded,” the governing body of world volleyball issued an official release on the matter.

It’s still unclear on what way will the spot of Russia on volleyball tournaments at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics be fulfilled. Also, who will organize the 2022 Men's World Championship now that Russia can't, which is also a part of the WADA punishment?

ITA M: Trentino secure signature of 3-time consecutive SuperLega top scorer Abdel-Aziz!

One of the best opposite hitters in the world right now. Trentino will have a hell of the power when it comes to finish the ball but will definetely struggle to receive it. Both Lucarelli and Kooy are easy targets to aim and were usually hidden behind a libero. Still seems like there will be top 3 clubs in Italy next season: Lube, Perugia, Trentino. Modena will be weaker for sure and will struggle to be in the top 6 and Piacenza may make a surprise. Reply

ITA M: Trentino sign newly proclaimed Italy National Team member Kooy

Dick Kooy is a really solid player who has been very consistent in his pro career. Gaining him and Rossini are very very good Italian additions. That being said the loss of Grebennikov, Russell and Kovacevic will be significant.
Ultimately I will cheer for a healthy uninterrupted A1 season....fans or no fans....We need to play volleyball!!! Reply
