Duhamel reacts to the Valiyeva scandal

Former Canadian figure skater Meagan Duhamel ridiculed the Russians who continue to consider themselves innocent of the doping scandal with Kamila Valieva, 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 X, formerly known as Twitter. The Canadian emphasized that the Russian team should have been completely excluded from the final protocol instead of given medals. Meagan 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. When one member of a team is accused of doping, the whole team is disqualified (in all other sports) and Russia still thinks it's unfair? What is wrong with these people?" Duhamel said.

The day before, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) found Valieva guilty of doping and disqualified her for four years. After that, the famous coach Tatyana Tarasova threw a real tantrum. She called the CAS judges murderers and pigs who had allegedly destroyed the 17-year-old skater's career.
