The Russian Anti-Doping Agency (Rusada) suspended her suspension and allowed her to continue to the Beijing Games.

This decision was challenged by the International Olympic Committee.

The same with the International Skate Union, which is asking the Sports Arbitration Tribunal (CAS) to restore Valieva’s temporary suspension.

The ITA said an example was taken by Valieva, who became the first figure skater to achieve a quadruple jump in the tournament, during the Russian True Skate Championship in St. Petersburg’s Christmas Day.

You were sent to a laboratory accredited by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) in Stockholm, Sweden.

The result wasn’t announced until February 8, the day after the team’s victory, but just before the awards ceremony.

Valieva tested positive for trimetazidine, which is used to prevent angina attacks but is on the WADA banned list because it is classified as a cardio metabolism modulator and has been shown to improve fitness ability.

She was temporarily suspended but appealed the decision and Rusada agreed to remove her on February 9.

The turn will now hear the case before his scheduled appearance at the solo event which begins on Tuesday, February 15.

Valieva, the favorite of the women’s singles, was spotted training at the Capital Indoor Stadium in Beijing.

International Olympic Committee (IOC) spokesman Mark Adams said he wanted a solution “as soon as possible”, adding that medals for the team competition would only be awarded after the outcome of the case hearing.

The United States finished second in team skating, followed by Japan and Canada in fourth.

The ITA also specified that “the motivated decision, including the reasons for the revocation of the temporary suspension, will be communicated shortly to all parties”.

Eric Myles, director of athletics for the Canadian Olympic Committee, said, “We have the same questions as everyone else about the situation in team figure skating.

“It is important that there is a fair trial and that the integrity of this sport is protected. We hope this is resolved quickly and that the medal winners here in Beijing get the medal they deserve.”

Russian athletes have competed under the name of the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) since Russia received a two-year ban from WADA in 2019 for its state-sponsored anti-doping program.

Between December 17, 2020, and December 17, 2022, no athlete can represent Russia at the Olympics, Paralympics, or World Championships.

The ban was initially four years, but Cas reduced it to two.

Valieva competed in the European Real Skating Championships in Tallinn, Estonia in January – both positive tests and the Winter Olympics – and she won the women’s singles, while Russia won a clean gold medal.

Noting that Valieva’s examples taken at both the European Games and the pre-Games were negative, the ROC stated: “Because the athlete’s example of positive doping was not taken during the Olympics, the results of the athletes and teams during the Olympics. subject to automatic review.

“The Russian Olympic Committee will take global measures to protect the rights and interests of ROC team members and to preserve the honestly won Olympic gold medal.”

Katarina Witt from Germany, two-time Olympic figure skating champion, said:

“Kamila Valieva is a young girl and a child prodigy whose performances are very difficult and magical friends all over the world when she was only 15, a minor, an addicted adult, and here she is not her fault.”
