WADA Concerned About Russian Skater Kamila Valieva


WADA is questioning Russia’s participation as a participant in the Winter Olympics or Winter Paralympics. According to WADA, Valieva has been found to be “not guilty of any criminal misconduct or negligence” in the doping scandal, but they are “concerned” about the length of time that passed between her testing and the Olympics.

Kamila Valieva’s story

Kamila Valieva (a Russian figure-skating competitor aged 15), is currently competing at Beijing 2022 Olympics. But her future remains in doubt. Valieva has been under investigation since a drug test came back positive in December.

Although Valieva was a star figure skater for Russia, her story is quite different from other past athletes. Age is another factor that complicates her case.

Valieva has been designated a World Anti-Doping Code-protected athlete. This means her case will be before the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

This decision is anticipated to be announced on February 14. Valieva may be disqualified for the women’s individual event if found guilty.

Additionally, Valieva could lose her opportunity to win an individual medal or be disqualified from the team event.

WADA, the world anti-doping agency, has called the decision to let Valieva compete “shocking” and “unjustified.

” Their concern is expressed by their dismay at the Russian antidoping agent’s decision.

Russian anti-doping agent blames Covid’s spread for testing delays

The Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) has cited an outbreak of COVID-19 as the reason for delayed testing of a doping sample.

While it deals with this outbreak that has affected the entire country and caused death, the agency expects to keep working.

The IOC last week confirmed that the case against a young figure skater had been reported positively. Today was the anniversary of Russia winning the gold medal for women’s figure skating.

WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency) stated that it was disappointed by the delays.

WADA claims that the timing of its decision is “weak” and could have been taken sooner, although it is not known how long the sample took.

WADA also condemned the Russian Anti-Doping Agency’s handling of the matter. According to the CAS, it failed to label the sample as a top priority. This could have affected testing for other athletes.

WADA concerns about Valieva’s doping case

Recent Russian anti-doping agency panel decisions have concerned the World Anti-Doping Agency. The agency is unhappy with the panel’s determination that Kamila Valieva, Olympic figure skater, had ‘no blame or negligence’.

Although Valieva’s disqualification by the panel does not mean she will no longer be able to compete in future competitions, it is certain that the panel’s decision will have an impact on the outcome.

WADA will therefore be evaluating whether the CAS ruling fits with the World Anti-Doping Code and rules governing its use.

WADA has demanded a copy from the WADA explaining the reasoning behind the decision. It indicated also that it intends to pursue the matter further.

According to a recent report, WADA will not hesitate to seek a court of arbitration for sport (CAS) decision in the case of Valieva.

It would be a significant boost for the United States at the 2022 Winter Olympics, in Beijing.

Russia’s participation in the 2018 Winter Olympics and 2018 Winter Paralympics

Russia is being scrutinized for its participation in the Winter Olympics, Paralympics and Paralympics.

This has been due to widespread doping. In 2016, a whistleblower exposed the state-sponsored doping program.

Russia has been banned by both the International Olympic Committee and World Anti-Doping Agency for doping violations.

At the Paralympics, the IPC banned Russia from competing for four years. Russian officials have claimed that the IOC had lifted the sanctions.

Thomas Bach (the president of the IOC) said that this was an unprecedented attack against the Olympic Games integrity.

On Monday, the IPC announced its decision. Russia won’t compete at the PyeongChang 2018 Paralympic Winter Games.

However, some athletes may be permitted to take part. At the moment, China’s Sui Wenjing & Cong Han are the leading contenders for Beijing.

China, which has won more medals than anyone else, includes the Winter Paralympics. It also ranks as the first country in terms of total medal count for the summer games.
