“Enough to play in childhood and make allowances for age. Kamila competed at the senior Olympics. If you compete in seniors, then you must be ready for all the requirements that are made for senior athletes.” Rodnina about Valieva’s case
Irina Rodnina spoke about the doping case of Kamila Valieva.
Earlier, the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) said it was not going to make the details of the case public.
Irina Rodnina: They operate within the framework of the law, which was created within the framework of the Olympic Committee itself.
First, she is not a child. Enough to play in childhood already – she’s 16 years old, already has a passport.
Probably, the trouble is that this rule appeared because the Youth Olympic Games were created. There is such a rule, the IOC rule, these are not our rules.
RUSADA operates within the framework of those decisions that IOC (International Olympic Committee) has.
Kamila competed at the senior Olympics. If you think that you are ready to compete among seniors, then you must be ready for all the requirements that are made for senior athletes.
You don’t have to make allowances for age. I think everything should be done legally and officially.
