In the end, it never happened IOC “cannot reinvestigate” Sotnikova doping allegations

IOC “won’t re-investigate Sotnikova test at time was negative”
Kim Yon-ah’s ‘stolen gold medal’ nowhere to be found

The controversy over Russian figure skater Adelina Sotnikova’s so-called “doping confession” has come to an end.

Sotnikova made waves earlier this month when she appeared on a Russian YouTube show and confessed that she had tested positive for doping at the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

If Sotnikova’s comments were true, she would have been stripped of her gold medal and the silver medalist, Kim Yeon-ah, would have been crowned the gold medalist.

As the controversy grew, the Korean Olympic Committee (KOC) immediately sent a letter to the International Olympic Committee (IOC), asking if Sotnikova would be retested for doping and for an official response.

However, it appears that Sotnikova’s doping allegations may be coming to an end.

According to the KOC, the IOC responded to the letter on April 4, stating that it has no plans to reopen the investigation into Sotnikova’s doping, saying that after re-analyzing samples from all Russian athletes in 2017, the year of the national doping scandal, there were no allegations of doping violations by Sotnikova.

The IOC has made it clear that it will not reinvestigate the case, making it difficult for the KOC to dispute it.

“I meant to say that doping was detected,” Sotnikova wrote on social media last month, insisting that “there were scratches on the doping sample (at Sochi), and the IOC found them,” she said.

He clarified that he did not test positive for doping, but that he was misunderstood when he mentioned the issue of sample tampering.

He also recently posted a photo on social media of himself posing in front of a medal ceremony photo from the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

In the end, Sotnikova’s doping allegations were likely to end badly, 카지노사이트 as her misleading statements only added to the controversy.
