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?

Re: @Unknown
They say that its because at the tie, the hitters were just tipping the ball, instead of hitting it hard. Then Gattaz, as any captain should do, tried to raise the team up in a way i think she lost it a little bit . Then Kasi was a little too empathetic and started arguing back.
I think Gattaz was wrong in the way she spoke to her team but Kasi was also wrong. Anyway, they said that they already talked and set everyhing right! #LetsGoMinas Reply
