“CAS” postpones Valieva’s case … and hearings in November

Hearings in the doping case of figure skating competitor Kamila Valeeva have been postponed to November 9 and 10, the Court of Arbitration for Sport said in a statement on Thursday, after the panel of judges requested additional documents.

According to Reuters, Valeeva’s sample was positive for the banned substance trimetazidine at the “Russian National Championships” in December 2021, but the result was not announced until February 8, 2022, a day after she helped her team win a medal. Beijing Olympics.

The International Ski Federation appealed to the Court of Sports after a Russian investigation ruled he was not guilty of any doping-related offences, despite his admission that he had failed a test to detect a substance banned in the sport.

Valeeva claimed in her defense that the positive result of the doping test was the result of mixing it with her grandfather’s heart medication.

The statement said: “After submission of evidence by the parties, the panel requested additional documents and it was decided to adjourn the hearing to a later date to allow all to peruse these documents. To consider appeals.

“The hearings will be held in Lausanne on the ninth and tenth of November 2023, after which the panel will study the case and prepare its final decision.”

The new postponement comes as a disappointment to the US team, which is still awaiting justice.

For her part, Tracy Marek, CEO of the US Figure Skating Federation, said in a statement: “U.S. Figure Skating is deeply disappointed by the news that the hearing has been postponed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.”

He added: “We recognize the complexities of the case and the time demands of the legal process, with nearly 600 days of waiting, without reaching a resolution, undoubtedly another painful setback for our competitors.” He continued: “We emphasize the importance of transparency in this matter. “Because it affects our athletes a lot.”

On the other hand, the disciplinary committee of the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (Rusada) concluded that Valeeva had committed a violation for which she “cannot bear any fault or negligence.”

The International Skiing Federation is seeking a ruling from the Court of Arbitration for Sport to overturn Rosada’s decision, punish Valeeva and exclude its results.

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) is seeking a four-year ban, as well as the exclusion of all Valeeva’s results from that date, and expressed some disappointment that the case was being postponed again.

WADA said in a statement: “Due to the confidentiality of the proceedings, WADA is not permitted to comment further on the postponement announced by the Court of Arbitration for Sport earlier today.”

Inter Miami lost 1-2 to Houston Dynamo in the US Open Cup final without injured Argentine star Lionel Messi.

Houston took control of the match from the start thanks to two quick goals from Griffin Dorsey (24) and Moroccan Amin Bassi (33 via penalty kick), before Inter scored a face-saving goal through Venezuelan Joseph Martinez (90+2).

Messi and his former Barcelona team-mate, Spaniard Jordi Alba, were absent, along with England co-owner David Beckham and their side’s short-lived second title after winning the League Cup last month. His former Real Madrid teammate in Florida was Frenchman Zinedine Zidane.

No clear reasons have been given for Messi’s absence and the extent of his injury, but he was previously reported to be suffering from “muscle fatigue”, while Argentina coach Gerardo “Tada” Martino spoke of the “repercussions” of an old injury.

“It wasn’t smart to play him,” Martino said after the match, “because we were taking a risk and we couldn’t even think about playing him for a few minutes.”

The former Barcelona and Argentina coach said he expects Messi (36) to play in Miami’s next five games in the American League’s regular season.

He added, “He will definitely play before the end of the league. We will follow each match individually and see how things go and whether the medical team can clear him to play without any risk.”
