This was announced by the Director General of the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) Veronika Loginova.

“The procedure for processing the results is underway. We cannot give the date of the announcement of the results. Approximately October. I emphasize that the investigation was carried out in relation to the personnel of the athlete, including the coaching staff.

As for the information that irrefutable evidence of the athlete’s guilt was found, I can’t comment in any way. I have no idea where this information comes from.

As for the possible punishment for Valieva, we can look in the WADA code what sanctions are provided for certain violations. The standard term under the code is four years. But the DAC (Disciplinary Anti-Doping Committee) may make different decisions depending on the circumstances. In the future, this decision can be challenged in different instances.

There are special rules for the disclosure of information about a protected person. I can’t say yet whether information on Valieva will be published.”
