Russian teen Kamila Valieva fails to win figure skating medal at Winter Olympics after falling several times

Russian figure skater Kamila Valieva has failed to win a medal at the Winter Olympics after falling several times in her final routine.
The 15-year-old, who controversially failed a drugs test before the Games began, was in tears on the ice at the end of her performance in the individual event.

Valieva was cleared to compete on Monday – a decision that was contested by the International Olympic Committee but overruled by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
A sample from her was taken on Christmas Day – and on 8 February, it returned positive for trimetazidine, a heart medication.
Valieva’s legal team claimed that her positive drugs test may have come from a contaminated glass of water that contained traces of her grandfather’s heart medication.

A separate investigation led by the Russian Anti-Doping Agency will determine whether Valieva and her Russian teammates can keep the gold medals they won in the team skating event last week.
