This is not the first case of using clenbuterol in Italy. Before the start of the Olympic Games in Rio last year, the beach volleyball player Viktoria Toth was tested positive. Also, the 36-year old player Marco Forni was also suspended because of being tested positive for this substance.

Re: @Axe
In this case volleyball should adapt the same scoring system as Basketball. They play 4 quarters of 12 minutes, in the end whoever has more points wins. TV would know exactly how long the game will last. Reply
