His injury = fear of being caught in the anti doping test.

I can’t wait to see the Russian Team lost de Gold medal of the London Olympic Games.

On the base of what you say this? This is just defamation!! He played the World League and he has been tested like all the players. For sure he has nothing to cover!!
Probably you are brazilian and your ass is still itching for Muserskiy bombs in London’s final !! He had a very troubled season, this year, in his club cause to injury and sickness and he never found back his normal good shape.
Before to let home Muserskiy i am sure that Russian national team tried everything possible!

My friend,
I don’t care much about the silver medal in London, there is no demerit to have stayed in second place.
Especially if the players gave their blood to play with honesty and honor.

About the facts, according to the Richard McLaren’s report 8 Indoor Volleyball players of the Russian National Team had their anti-doping tests changed in 2012.
Even if it is a only male player in the squad with his testes changed that’s reason enough to eliminate the whole team. Including the devolution of the medals.

And about Muserskiy’s injury, Its so strange a injury with few explanations… a few weeks of the Olympic Games.
