    Laishev called the data on Valieva's positive doping test “untrue and false”

    Published on

    “Convincing evidence has been collected”

    The Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) has collected serious evidentiary evidence during the investigation into the doping case of the famous Russian figure skater Kamila Valieva base against the athlete. Journalist Andrey Mitkov reported this on his Telegram channel.

    At the same time, he also told his version of why the date of the hearings on the results of the investigation has not yet been set.

    “The date of the hearing on the“ Valieva case ”has not yet been set (although exactly a week has passed since the announced completion of the RUSADA investigation – September 14) – because – drum roll !!! – it is impossible to agree on the presence of at least three members of DAK (Disciplinary Anti-Doping Committee) RUSADA at the hearings, — wrote Mitkov.

    There are eight members of DAK RUSADA. And in February, during the 2022 Olympics, when it became known about the positive test of Kamila Valieva at the pre-Olympic championship of Russia and her temporary suspension imposed by RUSADA, they acted promptly – within 24 hours they gathered experts, held a meeting and lifted the temporary suspension. According to sources, they were present almost in full force, they voted unanimously. The reason for the current behavior of DAK RUSADA members as a human being is more than understandable.”

    Mitkov also wrote that, according to his sources, during the investigation, RUSADA collected sufficiently convincing evidence that confirms the violation of anti-doping rules by Valieva rules. Moreover, we can even talk about some “aggravating circumstances”, and this can lead to an increase in the period of disqualification.

    “Therefore, whatever decision DAK RUSADA members make in the end, they will turn out to be extreme. They will be punished (disqualified with subsequent deprivation of the gold of the team tournament) – they will be subjected to the most severe obstruction, – continued Mitkov.

    Justified – at the request of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), the International Olympic Committee (IOC) or the International Skating Union (ISU) the case will go to the jurisdiction of the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), where it will most likely be reviewed.”

    A little later, the famous American insider journalist Dave Leese, author and host of The Skating Lesson podcast, citing his sources, reported that the B sample, opened at the request of the representatives of the athlete , also tested positive for a prohibited drug.

    However, the head of the Sambo-70 sports and education center, Renat Laishev, gave a comment to RIA Novosti, in which he stated that information about a positive B sample could be provocation.

    “All this is nonsense, falsehood and cheap lies. The evil Americans are again attacking our brilliant, great and incomparable figure skater. Shame on a nation that considers itself strong. The most important thing is that our skaters do not pay attention to this, ”Laishev told the Championship.

    The Gold of the Games is questionable

    If you believe the words of the journalist, the situation around Valieva is turning in a very unpleasant direction for the 15-year-old figure skater at that time, and this can affect the entire Russian figure skating team.

    Let us recall that student Eteri Tutberidze passed a positive doping test for trimetazidine on December 25 during the Russian Championship, however, the Swedish laboratory did not analyze her test for a long time, despite RUSADA’s request for an expedited review due to the status of the athlete.

    The Russian team took a confident first place, after which there was data on a positive doping test. RUSADA immediately suspended Valieva from participation in individual competitions, however, at an emergency meeting, the Disciplinary Anti-Doping Committee, following the results of the appeal of the Russian side, returned the opportunity to compete for Tutberidze’s ward.

    However, all this confusion, of course, affected the state young athlete, and she failed in the competition. Valieva was the undisputed favorite of the figure skaters’ tournament, but failed the short program, and after the free program she could only rise to the fourth line, left without a personal medal.

    Grandfather’s drug

    Now she can lose the gold of the team tournament as well. If, following the results of the hearings, it is revealed that the Russian woman is guilty of doping, she will be disqualified, and the national team will most likely lose the award for the team tournament. has not held the awards ceremony for the Beijing 2022 Team Tournament. And if Valieva got on the podium in individual competitions, then the awards would not be presented there either, waiting for the final decision.

    spends a lot of time. In particular, it is he who often takes the Russian champion to training.

    It is alleged that due to close contact, the substance could have entered the body of a star athlete by accident or by mistake.

    At the same time, the world community does not really believe in such a version, and participants in the team tournament from other teams periodically start talking in their social networks about the expectation that Russia will be deprived of medals for the team player.

    Young star

    As for Valieva, by the age of 16 she managed to collect a significant collection of impressive awards. In juniors, she managed to win two stages and the final of the Grand Prix series, the Russian championship, and the World Championship, then continuing her triumphal procession in adult skating.

    In adult competitions, the Russian woman won the final of the Russian Cup and the second place in the national championship in the 2020/21 season. Well, in the Olympic year, Valieva won everything in general, except for the personal tournament of the Games: two stages of the Grand Prix, the Russian Championship and the European Championship. were not allowed.

    For her grace and amazing jumping content, Valieva has long been considered the main favorite of Beijing, and her results only strengthened this status. Now she may even be left without Olympic medals in her career.
