The assistant coach of Russia Women’s Volleyball National Team, Sergio Busato, got punished by the FIVB for the gesture at the end of the game against South Korea in the FIVB International Qualifier for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

 

The International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) issued a press release regarding the case of Russia Women assistant coach Busato against whom the Korean Volleyball Association (KVA) filed a racial hatred complaint. The Italian is banned to sit on the bench for three matches and already started to serve his suspension at the ongoing CEV European Championship.

“The FIVB Disciplinary Panel has ruled that Mr. Sergio Busato, assistant coach of the Russia women’s national volleyball team, violated the FIVB’s Disciplinary Regulations following a gesture made at the Volleyball Qualification Tournament in Kaliningrad, Russia. Mr. Busato has been issued a three-match suspension, to be served during the Women’s European Volleyball Championship which starts today. Mr. Busato will, therefore, miss Russia’s matches against Belarus, Switzerland and Germany. The sanction is final. However, the FIVB Disciplinary Panel reserves the right to re-open the proceedings if Mr. Busato fails to serve his sanction,” the FIVB published.

This is right. He should be banned for longer! Why Russians and Serbians show this all the time. It should be a common sense and how come they don’t understand?

WC 2019 W: Brazil beat weakened team of Serbia in thriller, China win Asian derby

Because the VNL consists of teams that have been invited by the FIVB, rather than have truly qualified for it based on competitive criteria. These teams (e.g. Belgium & Slovenia with the men) would unjustifiedly lose a lot of points on the ranking because they didn't pay the FIVB enough to participate. on the other hand weak teams like South Korea would see their ranking go up just purely by participating.

In its current format the VNL is nothing but a worthless demonstration tournament of friendly games... :-(

The results of the VNLs don't give the participating national teams any points for the FIVB rankings. Does anybody or WorldofVolley has any idea, why? Reply
