“Camila is absolutely not to blame. We are right, we are not lying, we are not making anything up” – Tarasova on the Valieva case

It is necessary to use the experience of people who are ready to defend the rights of Russian athletes in court, Kamila Valieva not guilty of anything, said the honored coach of the USSR Tatiana Tarasova commenting on the figure skater’s doping case.

On Tuesday, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) announced that it considers the findings of the Anti-Doping Disciplinary Commission of the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (DAK RUSADA) to be incorrect in the case of Valieva and that it will use the right of appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). 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.

– I think Camila is absolutely not to blame. It is also necessary to have serious people who will defend its interests, the interests of the country. We are absolutely right, we are not lying, we are not making it up.

There is always a chance. You may be in last place in the short program, but still have a chance of winning the competition. You can skate so that in the end you are the first. We know how to do it, but there are people who know how to do something else. Does anyone know how to defend (interests), in English? – said Tarasova on the air of the program “All for the match!” on the channel.

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 discovered during the doping test of the Russian championship figure skater. The CAS allowed the Russian woman to participate in the individual competitions of the Games, where she took fourth place.
