Senator, ex-world champion in powerlifting Eduard Isakov believes that the information that appeared in the media about a positive doping test “B” of the Russian figure skater Kamila Valieva is a provocation against Russia .
“I consider all the accusations against Camila far-fetched. This is a provocation against the Russian national figure skating team and our country as a whole. The Western media baited our 15-year-old champion for far-fetched reasons right at the Beijing Olympics, possibly depriving her of her second gold medal, almost ten months have passed since that time. Now these miserable little people are again trying to expose young Valieva as a malicious doping addict, ” RIA Novosti reports Isakov’s words .
During the 2022 Olympics, a doping scandal broke out around Kamila Valieva. In the sample of the athlete, which she passed in December 2021, a prohibited substance was found. They wanted to remove her from participation in the Games. Literally a day before the start of individual competitions for women, it was decided to admit her to the tournament. As a result, Valieva took fourth place, unable to cope with the excitement in the free program.
It is worth noting that Valieva, as part of the Russian national team, won the gold of the Beijing Games in team competitions.
