CAS hearings in figure skater Valieva case won’t be held until August

MOSCOW, May 4 – RIA Novosti. USA Today columnist Christine Brennan said on Twitter that it is unlikely that the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) will hear the case of Olympic figure skating champion Kamila Valieva before August.

After the 2022 Olympics team tournament, in which Valieva helped the Russian team win, it was learned that the figure skater’s doping test on December 25, 2021 gave a positive result. CAS allowed the athlete to participate in the individual tournament of the Games, where he finished fourth. The International Olympic Committee announced the results of the Beijing Games competitions with the participation of Valieva as a preliminary, and the ceremony of awarding the winners of the team tournament of the Olympics was postponed until the investigation of the case was completed. Valieva’s case is currently at CAS.

“The trial is unlikely to take place before August 2023, a CAS representative briefed me,” Brennan said.

In January, it was reported that the RUSADA disciplinary anti-doping committee determined that Valieva was not guilty of violating anti-doping rules, but at the same time canceled her result in the Russian Championship – 2022. The Doping Agency (WADA) and the International Skating Union (ISU) appealed against the Anti-Doping Disciplinary Committee’s decision to CAS.
