Russian sports journalist Elena Vaitsekhovskaya said that Eteri Tutberidze was inconsistent.
In January, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) disqualified figure skater Kamila Valieva for 4 years for doping. The athlete trains with Tutberidze.
“Eteri Georgievna is too controversial in her comments. After all, her interview with Pozner, where she says that she controls everything, has already been raised. That they are looking for a substitute for the same meldonium, which, in fact, CAS has also taken for consideration.
And now to say that I am not involved in the preparation is at least immoral. Because, I think, if a coach works with children, he is obliged to know what and for what reason the one who trains with him is taking.
Because it is directly related to how to calculate the load, how to prepare a person. And for me it is such a very ugly moment of this whole story – so active attempts of the coach to remove himself, to stay out of the picture. The coach is obliged to know this,” said journalist Vaytsekhovskaya.
