ISU Russia ban keeps Kamila Valieva out of world championships

Kamila Valieva was dropped from the figure skating world championships after the sport’s governing body banned competitors from Russia and Belarus following the invasion of Ukraine.

Valieva, along with Anna Scherbakova and Alexandra Trusova, will miss the competition in Montpellier, France not because of the performance-enhancing drug, but because of their country’s gratuitous military action. Valileva was at the center of controversy at the Beijing Olympics after it was given that she tested positive for a banned heart drug on December 25. Russia won the team event and Valieva was allowed to compete in the individual section after an appeal, but finished fourth after a disastrous freestyle skate, with Scherbakova winning the gold medal.

The medal for the team competition has not yet been awarded and Valieva .’s photo fell in her personal show was one of the lasting moments of the Beijing game.
