The Russian women’s figure skating team has bigger problems than doping

Kamila Valieva and Russia’s women’s figure skating team are incredibly dominant. The team is also incredibly controversial

Russian dynamo Kamila Valieva, 15, made history this week by being the first female skater to land a quadruple jump in the Olympic

A few days later, her team made headlines again with reports that one of their athletes had failed a doping test, delaying the medal ceremony and leaving Olympics fans wondering.

USA Today reported that a skater on the team who is a minor and who competed in this week’s team event had tested positive for doping

Russian outlets reported that the unnamed skater who tested positive was Valieva, and that the test was taken in December but reported this week

According to the World Anti-Doping Agency’s privacy policy, minors are not subject to the same mandatory public reporting as adult athlete

The charge is all the more loaded as technically Valieva and her teammates are not competing for Russia but on behalf of the Russian Olympic Committee

this is because in 2019 WADA banned Russia from formally competing in major sporting events for widespread, state-sponsored doping.
