The Canadian Olympic Committee (COC) said the decision to allow Russian figure skater Kamila Valieva to continue to compete at the Beijing Olympics despite failing a pre-Olympic doping test was “worthless” equally regrettable.”
“The situation unfolding in relation to the doping case of a Russian figure skater is extremely regrettable and sad for the athletes,” the COC said in a statement on Monday. “The COC is fully committed to clean sport and we firmly believe that no one involved in doping or other corrupt practices has a position in the Olympic movement.”
The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CA) on Monday ruled that 15-year-old Valieva should not be temporarily suspended after testing positive for a banned heart drug ahead of the Olympics on Christmas Day. .
