The International Olympic Committee (IOC) will not look into a recent doping admission by a Russian figure skater Adelina Sotnikova
The IOC responded to a request from the South Korean Olympic Committee regarding Sotnikova’s doping sample.
The International Olympic Committee (IOC) will not look into a recent doping admission by a Russian figure skater Adelina Sotnikova.
“Recalling the year 2014, when after some time they said that they found doping in my sample, and I was supposed to have a trial, and all of that was supposed to happen. But then I was acquitted because they opened a second sample, and everything was fine,” said the Olympic figure skating champion in an interview on the YouTube channel Tatarka FM.
“The IOC said Sotnikova had tested negative with her ‘A’ sample in 2014, and that it didn’t identify any anti-doping rule violation by Sotnikova during an extensive testing of Russian athletes in 2017,” the KSOC official said. “Now that the IOC has said Sotnikova never tested positive with her A sample, it will be difficult for us to lodge a complaint.”
“The IOC stated that Sotnikova had a negative result in Sample A in 2014, and that during extensive testing of Russian athletes in 2017, no violations of anti-doping rules were detected on her part.
Now that the IOC has stated that Sotnikova never had a positive test, it will be difficult for us to file a complaint,” said a representative of the Republic of Korea NOC.
