Protest against the decision to deduct only Valieva’s points from the figure skating team event at the Beijing Olympics

The Canadian Skating Union announced that it will appeal the International Skating Union’s (ISU) disciplinary action against Russian figure skating star Kamila Valieva (17) for her use of banned substances.

The Canadian Skating Union said on its website on the 17th (Korean time),

“We do not agree with the ISU’s adjustment of the figure skating team rankings for the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics. 카지노

ISU must apply the rules fairly.”

The ISU adjusted the medal rankings for the figure skating team event at the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics based on the decision of the International Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS),

which ruled on the 30th of last month that Kamila Valieva violated anti-doping rules.

The Russian Olympic Committee ranked first in the figure skating team competition at the Beijing Olympics thanks to Valieva’s performance,

followed by the United States in second place, Japan in third place, and Canada in fourth place.

Initially, many predicted that if Kamila Valieva’s doping problem was acknowledged,

the Russian Olympic Committee would disqualify her from winning medals,

leaving the United States in first place, Japan in second place, and Canada in third place.

However, the ISU only gave Valieva’s women’s single short program and free skating scores 0 points,

and the Russian Olympic Committee’s men’s short-free,

pairs short-pair, and ice dance rhythm dance-free dance scores were added to the calculation.

As a result, the Russian Olympic Committee received a bronze medal with 54 points,

one point ahead of 4th place Canada (53 points).

Russia early protested against this decision and announced its intention to appeal to the Swiss Federal Supreme Court.
