The State Duma announced the number of objections of skaters from Russia to CAS 01:31

Olympic champion, deputy of the State Duma of the Russian Federation, Svetlana Zhurova, explained why the Russian side filed three appeals to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) against the redistribution of medals in the team tournament of the 2022 Olympic Games in Beijing. His words lead the way

“There is no doubt that the decision to lodge three separate objections was not spontaneous. I accept that this was done on the advice of lawyers advising us. Probably each of them has its own characteristics. After all, if you raise an objection, then they will reject it according to the wording stated there,” said Zhurova.

Objections were made separately by the Russian Olympic Committee, the Russian Figure Skating Federation and the Russian skaters on the team.

In January 2024, CAS disqualified Kamila Valieva, who was on the national team at the tournament, for an anti-doping rule violation. The skater was suspended for four years, effective from December 2021, and was stripped of all awards won during that period.

After the disqualification, the International Skating Union (ISU) awarded the Russians third place in the team tournament of the 2022 Olympic Games, without depriving Russia as a whole of the medal. Gold went to the US team and silver went to the Japanese team.

Previously Tatyana Tarasova statedHe does not believe in the success of the skaters’ appeal to CAS.
