Skate Canada’s Response to the ISU’s Statement Regarding the Awarding of Medals for the 2022 Beijing Olympic Games Figure Skating Team Competition

Skate Canada is extremely disappointed with the International Skating Union’s (ISU) position on the long-awaited awarding of medals for the 2022 Beijing Olympic Games Figure Skating Team Competition.

The Court for Arbitration for Sport (CAS) ruled that in addition to a four-year ban from competition, the ban includes “the disqualification [of] all competitive results” achieved by Russian figure skater Kamila Valieva since the positive test. The ISU in its recent decision is not applying Rule 353, which states that “competitors having finished the competition and who initially placed lower than the disqualified competitor will move up accordingly in their placement.”

Skate Canada strongly disagrees with the ISU’s position on this matter and will consider all options to appeal this decision.
