The International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) once again refused to comment on the topic related to the suspension of Russian athletes that includes volleyball players and national teams from this country.


When the information of a possible suspension of Russian athletes, including volleyball players, first appeared, the FIVB didn’t want to comment on the topic until the process is over. Even now, when the World Anti-Doping Agency determined doping non-compliance with their Russian colleagues (RUSADA) and imposed a four-year ban from competing to athletes from this country, the FIVB avoided commenting on the case.

“The FIVB will not comment on the RUSADA compliance situation until the full legal process, including all appeals, has concluded,” the governing body of world volleyball issued an official release on the matter.

It’s still unclear on what way will the spot of Russia on volleyball tournaments at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics be fulfilled. Also, who will organize the 2022 Men's World Championship now that Russia can't, which is also a part of the WADA punishment?

INTERVIEW: Hippe for WoV – “Live in the moment and make the best out of it”

'Until a year ago, Hippe was an indispensable member of the Germany National Team.' is not correct. She has not been playing for the national team since 2013. Reply

For the first time in history, Italy won’t participate in VNL

Well Sports Fans, the reality is that Italy won't be alone and you can bet more Federations will do the same as this worlwide pandemic evolves. Summer sports for all will not be happening and I can forsee European Leagues holding off until late October and November. Budgets for all clubs and federations are in a holding pattern until we get a better grip on this virus. Its actually a smart decision by the Italians. Hopefully the Atheltes use this time to rest and strengthen their bodies Reply
