Russian figure skater Kamila Valieva demanded that her gold medal at the Russian Championship be restored and that no results be annulled.
“Valieva demands from CAS a decision that it does not have jurisdiction over the claims of WADA, ISU and RUSADA, since the doping violation has not been proven, and the result at the Russian Championship must be restored. “In the alternative, she seeks a determination that she bears no fault or negligence or, more importantly, that the violation was not willful, so the period of ineligibility must not exceed two years and no results can be disqualified,” the release said.
Let us remind you that according to the results of the team competition at the Beijing Olympics, Russia won gold, the USA came second, and Japan came third. But the award ceremony was canceled due to the publication of the results of Valieva’s doping test. The figure skater passed a positive doping test on December 25, 2021, on the day of the free program of the Russian Championship
Hearings in the figure skater’s case will be held behind closed doors.
It was previously reported that Valieva will participate in the CAS meeting via video link.
