DAILY MAIL: All Russian athletes will be banned from Olympic Games!

According to the British website dailymail.co.uk, the International Olympic Committee is set to punish all 387 Russian athletes and to ban them from competing at the Olympic Games in Rio after revelations of their country’s state-sponsored doping program.



That means, volleyball men’s and women’s national team won’t compete in Rio! But, this information has not been confirmed by the IOC.

Recall that track and field athletes were already banned a few days ago. According to some well-placed sources, officials of the IOC are considering an option to ban Russia also for the Winter Olympics in South Korea.

Also recall that CEV supports Russia as well as the FIVB (recall the statement of its President Dr. Ary Graça).

We are waiting for the official decision of IOC, that will be made probably today…
