Newspapers and the internet are full of it. A doping scandal at the Olympics. The Russian Miss Perfect and top favorite for Olympic gold, figure skater Kamila Valieva, tested on doping. This test result would normally lead directly to a provisional suspension. And yet Valieva is allowed to start at the Olympics.
An emergency appeal from, among others, the IOC to the special Ad Hoc Commission of the CAS failed. As unfair as this must feel to some athletes (understandably so), the decision is not entirely incomprehensible. And that is mainly caused by the fact that Kamila Valieva is only 15 years old. A child.
