If Russia (as a country) will be banned, who will take their place?

 

It won't happen, but in the small chance it does it should be Germany.

Anyway, I don't know if Germany would accept given the opportunity, they don't have the same coach anymore and not even all the same players.

FIVB and CEV have given their full support for Russia, so if the IOC give the sport bodies the power to make their own decision, they won't change the indoor and beach volleyball qualifications.

Sure Gennari is now recovering from a knee surgery (but doing better and hopefully she will recover completely before the OG's start), but she's a better receiver than Diouf and we need more receivers in our team tbh. I'm sad for Valentina ofc, but I understand Bonitta's decision in the end.
It seems the other option was to leave Centoni at home, but he decided for Diouf.

I just looked on FIVB site, and now suddenly for quarter finals it says a2/a3 vs b2/b3, do i misunderstand something or there will be drawing of lots for the quarter finals for the second and third ranked teams?
