Russia’s national figure skating team has dropped banned skater Kamila Valieva, the Interfax news agency reported, citing Russia’s Ministry of Sport.

Valieva received a four-year doping ban in late January, effectively stripping the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) of its gold medal in the team event at the 2022 Beijing Winter Games nearly two years after the competition.
