“WADA will try to the end to find the solution it needs” – Pogorilaya on the Valieva case

Bronze medalist at the World Figure Skating Championships Anna Pogorilaya expressed the opinion that the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) will demand until the end to punish Kamila Valieva while noting the biased attitude towards Russian athletes on the part of WADA.

On Tuesday, WADA announced that it considers the findings of the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (DAK RUSADA) Anti-Doping Disciplinary Commission in the Valieva case to be incorrect and will use the right of appeal to the Arbitration Tribunal of sport. (CASE). The AMA demands that the 16-year-old figure skater be disqualified for 4 years and void all results from the date of sampling – December 25, 2021. Earlier, DAK RUSADA found that although the athlete committed an anti-doping rule violation, she bears “no fault or negligence” for it.

Have you filed an appeal? Well, they have that option. They will probably try until the end to find the solution they need. From the beginning, it was obvious that they would achieve their goal and that they would not leave Camila like that.

The main task, of course, was there to suppress Russian sports as much as possible. Why are they doing all this now? I don’t know. To obtain justice, to which they themselves do not adhere? Well, it has always been present in the sport, ever since the Olympics awarded two gold medals in pair skating.

The situation is not mutual: if our athletes make a mistake, they receive a tenfold punishment, but the other party in such a case is absolutely forgiven for everything, and some documents are filled out from the series that the athlete can take this or that drug,” Pogorilaya said. TV game.

Valieva at the Beijing Olympics helped the Russian team win gold in team competitions. Before the personal tournament, it became known that the illegal drug trimetazidine was found during the doping test of the Russian championship skater. The CAS allowed the Russian woman to participate in the individual competitions of the Games, where she took fourth place. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has decided to postpone the award ceremony for the team tournament until the end of the athlete’s trial.
