In addition, according to RIA Novosti, Adams indicated that Valieva's "B" sample had not yet been opened.
On February 15, Valieva showed the best result in the short program in the individual tournament at the 2022 Olympics in Beijing, scoring 82.16 points.
Recall that following the results of the hearings on February 14, the court did not remove the 15-year-old figure skater from participating in the Olympics. Experts believe that the commission allowed Valieva to continue performing, since, due to her young age, the skater has the status of a “protected person”.
Against the backdrop of the doping scandal, the IOC said that "in the interests of fairness in relation to all athletes" there will be no awarding of the winners of the team stage of the figure skaters competition if Valieva appears.
The positive doping test of the Russian woman became known on February 11. The banned drug trimetazidine was found in Valieva’s sample, taken before the start of the Beijing Olympics, during the Russian Figure Skating Championships in St. Petersburg on December 25, 2021.
