Russian Figure Skater Found Taking Two More Drugs For Heart Function
What is going on with this 15-year-old Russian figure skater? She said that the illegal heart drug found in her system was an accidental mix-up with her Grandfathers drug. Now we are hearing that more heart drugs have been found in her body. This is getting crazy.
The World Anti-Doping Agency filed a brief in the Valieva case stating that the existence of L-carnitine and Hypoxen, though both legal, undercuts the argument that a banned substance, trimetazidine, might have entered the skater’s system accidentally.
In my humble opinion isn’t it time to just say that she is disqualified from skating. I feel for the young lady, but the rules are the rules. Also, it is not fair to the other competitors.
