World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) President Vitold Banka has expressed concern over the acquittal of the RUSADA Disciplinary Committee in the Kamila Valieva case.
“The way the case of figure skater Kamila Valieva was handled was not encouraging. The unnecessary delay in this case reflects concern. Additionally, we have seen the questions the world is asking coaches about the protection of young athletes. We believe that DAK RUSADA’s decision is wrong, for this reason WADA challenged it before the Court of Arbitration for Sport. This decision raises questions about the credibility of the National Disciplinary Commission and does not strengthen it definitely not,” he said.
