Athletistic / Figure skating. Alexander Tikhonov, four-time Olympic biathlon champion, shared his opinion on the situation with Russian figure skater Kamila Valieva. She was suspended for four years for anti-doping rule violations.

The disqualification decision was taken by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). As a result, the Russian team was deprived of gold medals for the team championship at the 2022 Olympic Games in Beijing (China).

Ex-choreographer of the Tutberidze Zheleznyakov group called on sports officials to investigate

“Will Vlieva be able to come back after disqualification? She must return to big sport. We must not give up, we must have character. History knows cases of athletes returning after disqualification.

I believed and returned Olga Pyleva to the sport, and she brought a lot of benefits to the Russian national team. Yes, you lose your form, you have to work hard in training, but you should never give up, ”quotes RB Sport Tikhonov.
