CEV has issued an official announcement in which they support the participation of Russian volleyball teams at the Olympic Games 2016.



Read the full announcement that was published on the official website of CEV:

The European Volleyball Confederation gives full support to the participation of all Volleyball teams of Russia, Men and Women, Indoor and Beach, as with their sports quality, outstanding performance and results achieved, qualified for the Olympic Games in Rio 2016.

We deem that the Men’s and Women’s National Teams of Russia, having taken part in various top events under the auspices of both FIVB and CEV and with constant monitoring and control, proved that they have attained excellent results in a correct and sportive manner.

I would like to express gratefulness to the FIVB and in particular to the FIVB President, Dr Ary S. Graça F°, for his support to the athletes who, without any stimuli accomplished exceptional results.

The task of the FIVB and the CEV was, is and will be always to prevent all abuse in sports and Volleyball in particular, including, but not limited to doping, betting, corruption and discrimination of all kind, as well as all other cases that do not belong to the Olympic movement and ideals and to sport in general.

On behalf of all members of the Volleyball family, we would like to convey to Russian Volleyball players and Teams the message that they should continue to train and prepare hard and we wish them and all other participants of the Olympic Volleyball Tournament in Rio to achieve the best possible results and to show that Volleyball is one of the best and most beautiful sports in the whole world!

Aleksandar BORIČIĆ

CEV President
