Russian figure skater Kamila Valieva has been disqualified from the 2022 Olympic Games due to her contravention of anti-doping regulations.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in Switzerland ruled that Valieva violated anti-doping regulations and imposed a four-year suspension from December 25, 2021.

Valieva's participation in the 2022 Olympic Games has been invalidated, impacting the team figure skating competition.

Valieva tested positive for trimetazidine, a prohibited cardiac medication, at age 15, leading to a dispute in Beijing.

Despite the suspension, Valieva filed an appeal and was granted permission to compete in the 2022 Olympic Games.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) is responsible for reallocating medals from post-Olympic rulings.

Valieva's eligibility to compete will be suspended until December 2025, two months before the 2026 Winter Olympics in Milan, Italy.

The CAS panel has ruled against treating minors differently in adult competitions, citing the inability of global sports to enforce doping rules and timely punishments.
