Given the fact that Valieva’s case has already become public knowledge, WADA will encourage RUSADA to make appropriate disclosures
WADA reserves the right to appeal to CAS and will encourage RUSADA to to the disclosure of information on Valieva’s case.
After the publication of RUSADA’s decision to close the investigation into the case of Kamila Valieva, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), noted that it would reserve the right to appeal it to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
Valieva is a protected person due to her age – she was 15 at the time of the positive test.
“In accordance with the provisions of the World Anti-Doping Code, the results management body (in this case, the Russian Anti-Doping Agency, RUSADA) is not required to publish the details of the anti-doping case before it is completed, including any appeal that may be filed and considered. And in cases involving minors, such as this one, mandatory disclosure is not required at any stage. There are very good reasons for this rule. However, given the fact that this case has already become public knowledge, WADA will encourage RUSADA to make appropriate disclosures in the light of the circumstances of the case. As in all cases, WADA will carefully consider the decision of RUSADA in this case and reserves the right to appeal it to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, if appropriate.”
