Three-time Olympic champion in pair skating, State Duma deputy Irina Rodnina spoke about the information that appeared from the American journalist David Lees about the second positive doping test of figure skater Kamila Valieva . She has been training with Eteri Tutberidze since 2018 .
“Refer to her famous coach Tutberidze. What am I doing here? The “B” sample almost always turns out to be positive too, this is not news, ” Sport24 quotes the words of Rodnina .
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. The awards were never presented to the winners of the tournament. This will happen after the end of the investigation into Valieva’s case.
