Russia to host 2022 men's volleyball world championships

CANCUN, Mexico -- Russia has been picked to host the 2022 men's world volleyball championships.

The International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) decision was made possible by Russia's anti-doping agency being declared compliant again in September following a three-year suspension by the World Anti-Doping Agency.

FIVB president Ary Graca says the governing body ``unanimously concluded that Russia's bid was the best one for the global development of volleyball.''

Russia won the men's gold medal at the 2012 London Olympics.
