"What's wrong with these people?" Olympic champion mocked Russians hysterical over Valiyeva's disqualification
Former Canadian figure skater Megan Duhamel ridiculed the Russians who continue to consider themselves innocent of the doping scandal with Kamila Valiyeva, whose disqualification deprived them of gold at the 2022 Olympics. The winner of the 2018 Games in pairs skating noted that the representatives of the Russian Federation were awarded bronze after reviewing the results of the team competition, which is completely wrong.
Duhamel wrote about this on her page on the social network X, formerly known as Twitter. The Canadian emphasized that the Russian team should have been completely excluded from the final protocol, but instead they were given medals. Megan was surprised that the Russian Federation still considered this decision unfair, despite the violation of anti-doping rules.
"They are given a bronze medal that they don't deserve because when one member of a team dopes, the whole team is disqualified (in all other sports) and Russia still thinks it's unfair? What is wrong with these people?" said Duhamel.
The day before, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) found Valiyeva guilty of doping and disqualified her for four years. After that, the famous coach Tatiana Tarasova threw a real tantrum. She called the CAS judges murderers and pigs who had allegedly destroyed the 17-year-old skater's career.
As OBOZ.UA previously reported, Olympic champion and president of the Russian Wrestling Federation Mikhail Mamiashvili accused the world of lacking "humanity and compassion" for Kamila Valiyeva. And former biathlete Dmitry Vasiliev called for a coup in the IOC and the appointment of "the right candidate."
