The International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) suspended three players of Argentina Men’s National Team!


The FIVB announced that its Disciplinary Panel has ruled that Facundo Conte, Federico Pereyra and Pablo Crer, members of Argentina National Team, violated the disciplinary regulations of the governing body of the world Volleyball at the 2019 International Olympic Qualifier in Ningbo, China, on August 11. They were all suspended for imitating the shape of the Asian eyes.

Pereyra and Crer have been suspended for three matches, while Conte got a reduced ban of two matches because he immediately apologized on his social media account after making a gesture. All three players will serve their suspensions at the 2019 South American Championship that has begun yesterday. The FIVB also fined Argentine Volleyball Federation (FeVA) with 15,000 CHF.

Recall that the assistant coach of Russian Women was suspended for the same reason.

So what about Zoran Terzic for his rude gestures against the referee during the recent european championship final match?

See the following for the photos:

OK it was CEV tournament but can such things be tolerated?

ITA M: Modena conquer Trentino’s home court after 4 years, Perugia record 21st win in a row

Modena is on the roll. After Lube, they conquered Trentino and shown they will be formidable opponent in play-offs.
Something is wrong in Trentino land. Same players as last year but much worse results. Something will have to change soon, either results or coach... Reply

This was a terrific match to watch. High level players everywhere. Christenson is having the best year of his career in my opinion. Anderson was good early, Zaytzev was great late amd Holt was automatic in the middle.
Trentino needs a complete lineup soon. Russell was the best player this match for both teams. Whoever is going to get this him next year is going to be lucky.
Can't wait for these playoffs. Reply
