Statements about the allegedly positive doping test of the Russian Olympic champion and figure skater Kamila Valieva are unreliable, said Renat Laishev, head of the Sambo-70 sports and education center.
“Where did Valieva’s test give a positive result? It could be a provocation. Today it is possible. I think that’s the way it is. The test cannot give such a result. Since September 1, Valieva is no longer in Sambo-70. It is nonsense. In the current political situation, they are throwing a fly in the ointment at us. They want to finish off the little girl, ”Layshev is quoted as saying. RIA News”.
Earlier, American journalist Dave Leeves said that the B doping test of the Russian figure skater dated December 25, 2021 turned out to be positive, according to him, the banned drug trimetazidine was found in it.
In February, the International Doping Testing Agency reported that the doping test of the figure skater dated December 25 gave positive for trimetazidine. RUSADA imposed a temporary suspension on Valiyeva, after the athlete’s appeal on February 9, it was removed, the athlete was still allowed to compete.
