Valieva awarded Order of Friendship in Russia – Insidethegames.biz

Figure skater Kamila Valieva has been awarded the Order of Friendship by Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Valieva helped the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) to earn gold in the figure skating team event at the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics, but an asterisk remains alongside this result as the 15-year-old became embroiled in a doping controversy at the Games.
Valieva was only cleared to compete in the women’s singles event by a Court of Arbitration for Sport panel, which opted against reimposing a provisional suspension for a failed drug test.
The sample in question was provided on December 25 and contained the banned substance trimetazidine, although it was only reported as positive by a World Anti-Doping Agency-accredited lab on February 8 after the conclusion of the team event.
She missed out on the podium in the women’s singles, finishing in fourth, and the ROC could be stripped of its team gold should Valieva be found to have committed an anti-doping rule violation.
Russia’s official state news agency TASS reported that Valieva and her ROC figure skating team mates Alexander Gallyamov, Mark Kondratyuk, Anastasia Mishina, Victoria Sinitsina and Anna Shcherbakova were awarded the Order of Friendship, while Nikita Katsalapov received the Order of Honour and Alexander Trusova the first class Order of Merit for the Fatherland.
Treble cross-country skiing gold medallist Alexander Bolshunov was granted the Order of Alexander Nevsky.
Cross-country skiers Natalya Nepryaeva, Tatyana Sorina, Veronika Stepanova, Yulia Stupak, Sergei Ustyugov and Alexei Chervotkin have also been honoured with the Order of Friendship, while Denis Spitsov received the Order of Honour.
Ski jumper Irina Avvakumova, speed skater Daniil Aldoshkin and the ROC’s men’s ice hockey team have also been honoured.
The ROC won six gold, 12 silver and 14 bronze medals at Beijing 2022.

For nearly 15 years now, insidethegames.biz has been at the forefront of reporting fearlessly on what happens in the Olympic Movement. As the first website not to be placed behind a paywall, we have made news about the International Olympic Committee, the Olympic and Paralympic Games, the Commonwealth Games and other major events more accessible than ever to everybody. 
insidethegames.biz has established a global reputation for the excellence of its reporting and breadth of its coverage. For many of our readers from more than 200 countries and territories around the world the website is a vital part of their daily lives. The ping of our free daily email alert, sent every morning at 6.30am UK time 365 days a year, landing in their inbox, is as a familiar part of their day as their first cup of coffee.
Even during the worst times of the COVID-19 pandemic, insidethegames.biz maintained its high standard of reporting on all the news from around the globe on a daily basis. We were the first publication in the world to signal the threat that the Olympic Movement faced from the coronavirus and have provided unparalleled coverage of the pandemic since. 
As the world begins to emerge from the COVID crisis, insidethegames.biz would like to invite you to help us on our journey by funding our independent journalism. Your vital support would mean we can continue to report so comprehensively on the Olympic Movement and the events that shape it. It would mean we can keep our website open for everyone. Last year, nearly 25 million people read insidethegames.biz, making us by far the biggest source of independent news on what is happening in world sport. 
Every contribution, however big or small, will help maintain and improve our worldwide coverage in the year ahead. Our small and dedicated team were extremely busy last year covering the re-arranged Olympic and Paralympic Games in Tokyo, an unprecedented logistical challenge that stretched our tight resources to the limit. 
The remainder of 2022 is not going to be any less busy, or less challenging. We had the Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games in Beijing, where we sent a team of four reporters, and coming up are the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, the Summer World University and Asian Games in China, the World Games in Alabama and multiple World Championships. Plus, of course, there is the FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Unlike many others, insidethegames.biz is available for everyone to read, regardless of what they can afford to pay. We do this because we believe that sport belongs to everybody, and everybody should be able to read information regardless of their financial situation. While others try to benefit financially from information, we are committed to sharing it with as many people as possible. The greater the number of people that can keep up to date with global events, and understand their impact, the more sport will be forced to be transparent.

When British skaters Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean won the Olympic gold medal in ice dance at Sarajevo 1984 with 12 perfect 6.0s from every judge, for their interpretation of Maurice Ravel’s Boléro, an important member of their team was singer-actor Michael Crawford. Crawford, who had played Frank Spencer in British sitcom Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em and the title role in the musical The Phantom of the Opera, had become a mentor to the pair in 1981 and went on to help them create their Olympic routine. Crawford said he “taught them how to act”. He was present with their trainer Betty Callaway at the ringside at Sarajevo as they created one of the most iconic moments in Olympic history.
