Something doesn’t seem to add up with this story.

I am not saying the coach didn’t commit suicide, it just seems they didn’t do much of a investigation.

Volleyball is a huge sport in Russia with millions of dollars invested in teams and gold medal dreams for each Olympics. This year the Russian women were favorites in the tournament only to be knocked out of the quarterfinals to the eventual gold medalists of Brazil. 

Following the disappointing finish, head coach Sergey Ovchinnikov returned to his position with Dynamo Moscow as they resumed training in Croatia. There, he reportedly hung himself in his fourth-floor hotel room.
