RUSADA General Director Veronika Loginova said that the organization will investigate the case of Russian figure skater Kamila Valieva in compliance with all her rights as a protected person.
The athlete turned 16 in April.
“We are investigating to identify all circumstances of a possible anti-doping rule violation in the interest of a protected person, identify individuals involved in this violation (or exclude potential involvement), and collect additional materials and evidence relevant to this case. . I would like to draw attention again to the fact that the athlete is a protected person and additional comments on the investigation process not only violate the rights of the athlete, but also hinder the investigation, taking into account the principles of confidentiality and efficiency, ”RIA Novosti cites Loginova.
Recall that at the last Beijing Olympics, Valieva became the winner of the team tournament. After that, it became known that in December 2021, the 15-year-old athlete tested positive for doping. His test found a banned substance, trimetazidine.
On February 14, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) allowed the Russian woman to participate in the individual competition, in which she took fourth place.
