- Figure skater cleared by a Russian Anti-Doping Agency tribunal
- Wada hints it could take case to court of arbitration for sport
The brilliant 16-year-old Russian figure skater Kamila Valieva, whose positive doping test dominated headlines at the 2022 Winter Olympics, has been cleared of any wrongdoing by a Russian Anti-Doping Agency tribunal.
That is unlikely to be the end of the matter, however, with the World Anti-Doping Agency expressing its “concern” at the decision – before hinting that it could challenge the ruling at the court of arbitration for sport (Cas).
