Zhulin said that he would not be surprised if all athletes were disqualified after Wagner’s words.
MOSCOW, January 24 – RIA Novosti, Alena Sulizova. Russia’s honored coach Alexander Zhulin told RIA Novosti that he would not be surprised if figure skater Kamila Valieva was disqualified following an investigation into the positive doping test case in light of the generally negative attitude towards Russian sports in the West.
Andreas Wagner, President of the German Skating Union, had previously suggested that the skater would be disqualified.
Earlier, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) reported that the RUSADA disciplinary anti-doping committee found that Valieva was not guilty of violating the anti-doping rule, but at the same time canceled her result in the Russian Championship – 2022. He stated that he can exercise his right to appeal the decision at the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS).
