This court explained that it rejected the claims by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the International Skating Union due to serious flaws associated with the late notification of the young woman´s doping test results.

It recalled that the 15 year-old athlete, is a “protected person” on the World Anti-Doping Code because she is a minor and subject to different rules than an adult.

However, the court explained that this verdict only concerns Valieva´s participation in Beijing 2022, did not consider the gold medal won last week with the Russian Olympic Figure Skating Committee and will review this issue in another proceeding.

The International Testing Agency (ITA), which filed the lawsuit on behalf of the IOC and the other agencies, acknowledged the court decision for the teenager to remain in competition.

However, the IOC determined not to award figure skating medals at the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics, because the Russian Kamila Valieva is among the winners and her case continues open.
