Tretyak: “Hockey players support Valieva.  We want the girl to believe that justice will prevail.

President of the Russian Hockey Federation (RFH) Vladislav Tretiak on he said the hockey players were trying to support the figure skater Kamila Valieva and instill in him faith in justice.

On January 29, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) suspended Valieva for four years for violating anti-doping rules and deprived her of all awards won since December 25, 2021. The 17-year-old athlete’s suspension led to a review of the results of the team tournament of the 2022 Olympic Games, where the Russian team won. First place is now awarded to the American team, the Japanese are second and the Russians will receive bronze.

— We are very close to figure skating. Of course, a severe sentence. The world’s strongest figure skater hasn’t competed in four years. It’s unclear why the top athlete would agree to anything; she was already the strongest. Very disappointing. All we have to do is support her. We, hockey players, support you and invite you to events. We want the girl to believe that justice will prevail and she will return and delight the fans with her skating,” Tretyak said on the air of the show “Loud! “. on .
