Laishev said that after RUSADA’s decision, he initially believed in Valieva’s innocence.
MOSCOW, January 13 – RIA Novosti, Svetlana Bonopartova. Renat Laishe, head of the sports and training center “Sambo-70”, told RIA Novosti that from the very beginning he believed in the innocence of figure skater Kamila Valieva in case of violation of anti-doping rules.
On Friday, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) reported that the RUSADA Disciplinary Anti-Doping Committee (DAC) found that although Valieva had committed an anti-doping rule violation, there was no “fault or omission” on her part. WADA has stated that it can exercise its right to appeal this decision to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).
“Let WADA do whatever they want. They start shaking, bouncing, trying things. But the audience is fed up with no Russians on the international stage, no competition, no classical figure skating.” People are already tired of these quarrels. And most importantly, Economists are fed up with it because television companies are losing a lot in the current situation. The entire public is now on our side,” he said.
RUSADA has canceled the result of the 2022 Russian Championships won by figure skater Kamila Valieva. At the 2022 Russian Championship, Alexandra Trusova took second place, Anna Shcherbakova third and Adelia Petrosyan fourth.
“Of course, the Russian championship medal should have been left to Valieva. I don’t know how Trusova will react to this title now, but she’s an Olympic silver medalist. She deserves a medal too,” the agency’s source said. .
