Figure skating prodigy Camila Valeeva cries after CAS verdict

Russian figure skater Camila Valleoa has expressed her emotional turmoil for the first time over the CAS arbitration decision at the Beijing Winter Olympics. “These days were very difficult for me. I am happy, but I am mentally tired at the same time,” she told Russian state television, crying.

The 15-year-old is allowed to compete in the short program on Tuesday (9:52pm OZ/2:52pm CET) at the Capital Indoor Stadium despite a positive doping test; Freestyle swimming will be played on Thursday. “These are tears of happiness, but perhaps they are also tears of sadness,” Valeeva said. She is happy that she is able to continue to represent Russia.
