Men's World Championship 2018

Puerto Rico couldn’t go to USA because of hurricane maria. The hurricane didn’t hit whole Dominican Republic. And, I think it became depression after hit Puerto Rico. Cuba didn’t compete the tournament because of closure US embassy in Cuba. The Cuba women team qualified in Canada last weekend.

2017 FIVB U21 World Championship | Czech Republic

I think Slovenia rejected participation. Therefore, Morocco is the next ranked team should qualify. This year slovenia will host a tournament and qualifed in many tournaments for both men's and women's. And, you forgot to bold Egypt as continental champion.

2017 FIVB World League

I think the news should be Montenegro not Myanmar. And, how about pan american cup ranking that FIVB told that it was qualification tournament for WL WGP. Both VEN and PUR didn't compete. AVC cup is nothing, now?

2018 FIVB World Championship - Japan

Quoted from "xopxeech1" This, to me, doesn't make sense. How come a confederation tournament from 2015 will be valid as a qualification tournament for the 2018 World Championship??? Agree. Quoted from "xopxeech1" so, in reality, there is one ticket available for south America. I don't get it. I will show you this http://www.fivb.com/en/about/news/world-…firmed?id=58748 CSV had 7 registered teams. CAVB had 29 teams. I think it make sense. Accaully South American has only 12 country, but I'm not ...

2018 FIVB World Championship - Japan

Quoted from "ossubtus" interesting , even Scotland has a team but not England... I'm not sure about other sports, but in team sports, like hockey, rugby, football. There are England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland teams. There are many complex about sovereign state. There is team Great Britain in the Olympic, not England. Because GB is the member of IOC, others not. The athletes from Northern Ireland must choose to compete under GB or Ireland, because GB doesn't include Northern Ireland....

2016 Olympic Games - Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Quoted from "rbdfabio" In gymnastics the team is made of 5, but the team goes the Olympics with 7. 2 alternates stays there just in case someone gets hurt, example is France that boy broke his legs and was replaced by one alternate. Same thing should be in volleyball, takes 2 extras players. They can practice with the team but would not be considered part of the team or get a medal. Then if someone is hurt that person leaves and the alternate becomes part of the 12 roster. I think without Piano...

Russian NT 2016

OK, I read the link. It told me that meldonium was found when Holt played in Russia. He used moldenium before it became illegal substance. Markin was clear for that, and no banning for Russia from OGQT. http://www.fivb.org/EN/Medical/Document/…US_20161428.pdf In the same way, Holt shouldn't be punished, too. Markin was banned because of IOC measure. IOC banned athletes even though the punishment was done. I think that this is about Russia punishment. It's not about doping issue.

Russian NT 2016

Quoted from "Matthias" Zaytsev and Grankin didn't have positive results (as far as I know), while Markin and Holt did. About holt, Is there really confirmation? If it confirms, I agree.

Russian NT 2016

Quoted from "NicolettaL" Yes we do. It was launched in Russian media today Grankin/Kobzar Mikhailov/Bakun Ashchev/Volvich/Volkov A. Kliuka/Tetukhin (you know who I mean but I can't learn english version of his surname)/Volkov D. Ermakov/Verbov Quoted from "Matthias" Quoted from "lche059" Quoted from "Matthias" As I thought, Markin was not allowed to play OG from FIVB (source). I fully agree with the argument that Max Holt should be banned as well under the given circumstances... that argument m...

2016 FIVB World League

Quoted from "arman" Yesterday I was Curious why the amount of noise in Azadi Stadium is much less compared to previous years, then asked friends and they said that they didnt allow trumpets entering the stadium. It is still more than standard while some people could bring trumpets but the situation has improved a lot. Irannians are now trying to use their larynx more to make sound! It also is great that women was allowed to attend the game.

2016 FIVB Volleyball World Grand Prix

Quoted from "pappi" Quoted from "samsara" I wonder in WGP pooling why some teams can meet twice in the preliminary rounds such as CHN v USA but some teams don't see each other at all, for example CHN v RUS or CHN v TUR and so on... I know there was some pool drawing but still don't grasp it why some teams meet twice whereas some others never play each other. To put it into different words, WHY FIVB does not preclude the duplication matches during the preliminary rounds? FIVB has a kind of stric...
