It was reported that Russian figure skating star Kamila Valieva (17), who was suspended as an athlete for violating anti-doping regulations, was administered as many as 56 drugs from the age of 13 to 15.

The British daily The Times quoted a ruling from the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) on the 13th (local time), saying, “Three (Russian) team doctors gave Valieva heart medication, muscle-strengthening drugs, and performance-enhancing drugs for two years ahead of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics. was mixed and administered like a cocktail,” the report said.

The list of drugs for which Valieva tested positive included the steroid hormone ecdysterone, hypoxen, which improves lung capacity, L-carnitine, which converts fat into energy, creatine, an amino acid supplement that improves muscle strength, and Stymol, which reduces fatigue. .

Valieva’s medical team explained to CAS, “Valieva was diagnosed with heart disease when she was 14 years old, took heart medication for it, and the substance that tested positive for doping was part of the treatment mixture,” but this was not accepted.

The Times suspected organized drug administration in Russia.

The media said, “Dr. Filip Shvetsky, one of the three medical staff who administered drugs to Valieva, has been with the Russian figure skating team since 2010,” and added, “He served as a team doctor for the Russian national rowing team in 2007 and was banned from athletes. He pointed out, “I was suspended for two years on charges of administering drugs.”

In addition, he pointed out, “Although Valieva was disciplined, the three team doctors and the coach of the Russian figure skating team, Yeteri Tutberidze, did not receive any discipline.”

Olivier Nigley, Secretary-General of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), said, “It is a shocking incident,” and added, “On the one hand, Valieva was sacrificed to protect the adults who led the drug administration.”

Valieva caused a stir when the banned substance trimetazidine was detected in her urine sample ahead of the women’s figure skating singles event at the Beijing Winter Olympics held in February 2022.

WADA filed a complaint against RUSADA and Valieva to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in November 2022 after the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) delayed its investigation into the case, and CAS suspended Valieva for four years in January. .

Valieva claimed, “I tested positive for drugs because of strawberries for dessert prepared on the cutting board my grandfather used to crush pills,” but this was not accepted. 스포츠토토
