Kamila Valieva caught doping at the Olympics

The Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) has failed to provide evidence that figure skater Kamila Valiyeva accidentally doped before the 2022 Winter Olympics with a cake her grandfather had made for her. During a meeting of the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Lausanne (CAS), representatives of the Russian Federation stated that they had no evidence of the existence of the athlete's relative.

This is stated in the reasoning part of the CAS decision, which previously disqualified the figure skater for four years. During the hearings, the athlete stated that the strawberry dessert from her grandfather was a way of getting doped into her body. RUSADA's investigation found that there was no evidence from Valiyeva that the man even existed, causing a lot of laughter from the fans.

Readers of the Sports.ru portal were puzzled by this statement by RUSADA, mocking the officials. They called the skater's line of defense shameful and disgraceful. At the same time, they recalled that Russia had demanded that CAS not make the full verdict in Valiyeva's case public.

"I'm screaming like a seagull. It's easy to hear. They turned the hearings into a circus", "This is the funniest thing I've read lately", "Probably the rotten west is to blame. It's a shame, of course, there's no politics there, our people just sat in a puddle," "Either grandpa or delirium," "Well, this is completely beyond comprehension," "Schrödinger's grandpa," "God, what fabulous defenders we have," "No grandpa, no problem," "Some kind of shame on our heads," people wrote in the comments.
