Athletistic/ Figure Skating. At the end of 2021, Russian figure skater Kamila Valieva passed a positive doping test. This was revealed during the Beijing Olympics. Valieva was under investigation. As a result, the RUSADA Disciplinary Committee declared the athlete innocent. In this regard, WADA appealed to the CAS. Today, February 22, such a decision was also taken within the ISU.

– ISU studied materials on decision [дисциплинарного комитета] RUSADA and decided to appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport. The organization believes that all young athletes should be protected against doping. Such protection cannot be achieved by exempting young athletes from the application of sanctions, reports TASS with reference to the ISU press service.
