The doping of the Russian figure skater Kamila Valieva, one of the main of the most mysterious topics of the last days of the Beijing Olympics, has been confirmed. The International Testing Agency (ITA) reported that her sample, taken on December 25 at the Russian Championship, gave a positive result for the banned drug trimetazidine. However, the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA), after the victory of the Russian team in the figure skating team tournament on Monday, lifted the temporary suspension from the 15-year-old Valieva, who made a huge contribution to it. Meanwhile, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the International Skating Union (ISU) will appeal the decision to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), which is due to hear the high-profile case before the start of individual world singles competitions. In the event of their unsuccessful outcome for Russia, Kamila Valieva is threatened with disqualification, and the national team will lose the gold medal.
