The International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) won’t yet comment on the situation regarding the 2022 Men’s World Championship in Russia whose holding is at risk due to the doping-related scandal of the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA).


Until the Executive Committee of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) makes the decision on the status of the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA), that will affect the participation of the Russian athletes at international competitions and Russia’s organization of these kinds of events, the FIVB will restrain from commenting on the matter.

The FIVB will not make any comment until the WADA CRC process regarding RUSADA compliance (including any potential appeals), has concluded.” was told to TASS by the press service of the FIVB.

Recall that in case WADA imposes sanctions against RUSADA, both men’s and women’s volleyball national teams of Russia will be banned from competing at the 2020 Olympics, as well as all Russian athletes, while the organization of the 2022 FIVB Men’s World Championship that’s supposed to be held in 10 cities across Russia will be canceled.

TUR W: VakıfBank’s hellish plan – Bartsch to come in January, Egonu in summer!

Re: @Anon - Zhu Ting is not gonna go anywhere till Olympic is over. Wrist injury gonna take sometime to heal and recover. Hopefully She will fully fit before Olympic. Otherwise defending the title is almost impossible for China without Zhu Ting.

If Zhu Ting is still hurt or injured during the tournament, the coach can use her as a middle blocker. I feel she is the best blocker on the team. She has great instincts of where the hitter will hit to, she is tall and her hang time is very good. She is one of the more effective blockers against Egonu.

CL M: Benfica shock Warszawa to record first-ever triumph in pool stage

VERVA Warszawa's defeat was due to Anastasi who too underestimated his opponent.
Starting lineup of VERVA in the match included 4 players who rarely played in the domestic league.

In order to make it to the playoffs, VERVA had to win this match against the weaker team but lost.
Therefore, it became very difficult for VERVA to pass through the group.
