Olympia – CAS decision: Kamila Valieva may start in single competition

The CAS has decided: Figure skating Olympic champion Kamila Valieva is allowed to start in the single competition in Beijing. The 15-year-old Russian runs from Tuesday under tremendous pressure.

Kamila Valieva is allowed to run her second gold medal in Beijing despite the urgent doping suspicion. The sports funnel of CAS decided on Saturday in favor of 15-year-old Russian – and against the IOC and Wada. The rings organization and the doping hunters had appealed against the repealed suspension of the Figure Skating Wunderkind. The “case” Valieva is thus not completed – it runs under reservation. And Katarina Witt demands consequences.

First, the decision made by the ad hoc chamber of the CAS in the Continental Grand Hotel of the Chinese capital, only that Valieva may attend the individual competition of the winter games. It starts on Tuesday in Capital Indoor Stadium with the short program, Valieva should go to ice at 21:52 pm local time (14.52 mez). Your freestyle to Maurice Ravels Bolero with the unique quadruple jumps can present Valieva on Thursday.

But she stops the pressure? After all, the teens long ago is a political point of a politician, for many observers victims of a non-purifiable system and victim of a criminal environment. No ice-cold scamming. Nevertheless, it will have to answer for the forbidden substance trimetacid. Only after return from China, it will also go around the Russian team gold, to which Valieva had contributed much. “This is a dilemma in whom we all get stuck,” said Ioc spokesman Mark Adams on Monday.

The CAS informed in its judgment that Valieva was particularly protective. The anti-doping rules of the Rusada and Wada code are not sufficient for preliminary suspensions for minor athletes and athletes. The CAS Director-General Matthieu Reeb also emphasized the “irreparable damage” to which an exclusion of winter games had led.

The Russian anti-doping agency had removed Valieva’s suspension after only one day, while some questions are not clarified. The most discussed: Why was the result of the sample announced only on February 8, a day after the deaf decision? The test took place on 25th December, Corona Falls in the Laboratory in Stockholm should have delayed the evaluation.

The delay has taken Valieva the opportunity to “meet certain legal requirements”, it was said in the CAS declaration. Reeb said, “We all would not be here if it would have taken as usual a week or ten days.”

WITT: “Valieva does not battle”

Regardless of the CAS decision, figure skating legend is hoping for a rethinking at the International Olympic Committee and ISU. “Maybe the age should be set to 18 years for participation in the Olympic world stage,” wrote WITT on Facebook. The 15-year-old belonged to the youth games, “they were launched for that.”

Witt asks: “Would not it be right to let a child tire?” Instead of burning it. Above all, this reproach must be given to her trainer Eteri Tutberidse, which is notorious for her overlying methods. The list of young athletes, driven by Tutberidse shot into the world top and disappeared with mental or physical damage is long.

Witt is convinced: “Valieva is not responsible.”
