President of the US Olympic Committee reacts to Putin’s remarks about figure skater Valieva

Sarah Hirschland, chairman of the US National Olympic Committee, commented on Russian President Vladimir Putin’s remarks about figure skater Kamila Valieva.

Recall that Putin, commenting on the performance of a 16-year-old athlete at the 2022 Olympics, said earlier that “such excellence cannot be achieved dishonestly.”

Doping scandal erupted around Valieva in Beijing. A prohibited substance was found in the sample of the athlete he passed by in December 2021. They wanted to exclude the Russian woman from participating in the Games. Literally the day before the start of individual competitions for women, it was decided to accept her into the tournament.

As a result, Valieva took fourth place. She became the leader after the short program, but lost the lead after a few mistakes in the free skating she. The investigation into the Valieva case is currently ongoing.

“You see reports of Putin defending Valieva and saying, ‘How can this process be considered fair if he comes to defend her before the investigation is over? – Quotes from Hirschland’s words in games.

Before Putin donated Figure skater Valieva in a silk scarf at a meeting with Olympians in the Kremlin.
