A video in support of Valieva was broadcast in Times Square in New York

Video supporting Russian figure skater Kamila Valieva was broadcast on the big screen in Times Square in New York, according to the athlete’s fan club’s Telegram channel.

As noted, the video was posted by three fans from the Olympic champion’s fan club; the video was broadcast every 10 minutes for two days.

— The video, which contains many moments from Camila’s career, as well as everyone’s favorite programs of this season, turned out to be very touching and at the same time strong, exciting! We see Camila at different stages of her career and we remember those emotions, the joy she brings us with each of her performances. This is truly a manifesto of love for Camila, for her talent, her beauty, her strength and her perseverance,” the message reads.


Valieva’s doping case is currently being examined by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). The 2022 Beijing Olympics figure skater helped the Russian team win gold in the team competition. Before the personal tournament, it became known that the banned drug trimetazidine was found during the doping test of the figure skater of the Russian championship. The CAS admitted the Russian to the individual competitions of the Games, where she took fourth place. However, due to the investigation, the award of the winners of the team tournaments has not yet taken place: the American team came second in these competitions.

In January, DAC RUSADA ruled that even if the athlete had committed an anti-doping rule violation, she bore “no fault or negligence”. Valieva avoided sanctions, except for the cancellation of her results on the date of sample collection – December 25, 2021. Subsequently, RUSADA, ISU and WADA filed appeals to the CAS, which were grouped into a single procedure.

At the end of September, closed hearings were held in Lausanne on the appeals of RUSADA, ISU and WADA against the decision of the RUSADA Anti-Doping Disciplinary Committee (DAC) in the Russian’s case. At the end of the third day of the meeting, it was decided to postpone the hearings and resume them on November 9 and 10.

In February, fans congratulated Olympic champion Anna Shcherbakova by displaying an image of her with an Olympic medal on a Times Square screen, signed with the words Happy Valentine’s Day, Anya.
