Kamila Valieva

Did You Know…Why Russian figure skater Kamila Valieva was allowed to compete? Despite failing her drug test, Valieva was not disqualified from the Olympics because of the incompetency of the drug-testing laboratory. She tested positive from a test she took in December; this was after she had led the Russian team to victory in one event. Since the delay was no fault of the athlete’s, officials determined it would be unfair to bar her from competing at this point.
