By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Belizean Iman Safa, who also holds Lebanese nationality, on Wednesday won gold with the Lebanon Women’s National Team in 1st West Asia Women’s Volleyball Championship.

“Congratulations to Iman Safa, who played in the 1st West Asia Women’s Volleyball Championship with the Lebanon national team from November 13-24, 2022 in Jordan,” said Belize Volleyball.

“Team Lebanon won gold and Iman Safa won the Best Setter award.”

Lebanon won the West Asia Championship, held under the aegis of the Asian Volleyball Confederation, undefeated over Jordan 25-13, 25-18, 25-14 at Palace Stadium in Al Hussein Youth City Complex in Jordan’s capital city Amman on Wednesday. The other eight participating teams were Palestine, Syria, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Oman, and Kuwait.

According to the Belize Volleyball Association, Safa is registered under their association in the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) that governs the sport globally. The BVA said that if she decides to play for Lebanon (which she already did), the Association won’t interfere with her but said there is a process to follow.

The process entails changing nationality registration with the FIVB with the agreement of the Federation of Origin, which in this case is Belize.

“A player’s Federation of Origin may be changed only once. Changes of Federation of Origin may be approved only by the FIVB Executive Committee, upon proposal of the FIVB President, and provided that the right to be heard of the current Federation of Origin has been respected,” says Article 5.1 of the of the FIVB Sports Regulations of March 21, 2022.
