Covered in the controversy of her positive drug test, Kamila Valieva selected not to speak to the media following the short program on Tuesday. After being cleared to compete by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) on Monday, (14th February 2022), Valieva is well on her way to the second gold medal in Beijing. Just a day after she powered the ROC to the team event gold medal, the positive test of Valieva for trimetazidine surfaced however the test happened 6 weeks ago.

The Russian Anti-Doping Agency asserted it did not get notification until 7th Feb, when it banned Valieva from continuing to compete. Though after the opening portion of the individual figure of women skating competition, Valieva shook her head as she breezed past journalists in the mixed zone sans stopping to speak. Since triumphing the team event with the ROC, the 15-year-old has taken a restless week after news came into the limelight that she tested positive for a banned heart medication in a sample that was taken last year on 25th December 2021.
But on Monday, CAS ruled that as a minor, Valieva was a “protected person” subject to more protections under the World Anti-Doping Code, clearing her to continue participating in Beijing. At the time of the hearing, her attorneys argued that the positive test resulted from contamination from the medication of her grandfather. If Valieva goes on the win, or medal, in the winter Olympics, the IOC has already declared that there will be no medal ceremony until an entire probe is completed.
