Wada itself will launch an independent investigation of technical personnel, and therefore unprotected persons because they are over 16 years old, which deals with Valieva.
There is talk of coaches Eteri Tutberidze and Sergei Dudakov, choreographer Daniil Gleikhengauz and maybe even a doctor. “We are asking (Rusada) to complete a thorough investigation into the entourage, and we will look into the matter while making sure a proper investigation is conducted,” said Wada president Witold Banca, adding, “I want to prevent all perpetrators for life.” Then Banka said: “We still have the older generation of coaches and doctors working with children and athletes, so it is our strong demand that the Russian Ministry of Sports change this situation.”
In the United States, new laws allow prosecutors to demand fines of up to $1 million and prison sentences of up to 10 years, even for non-Americans, if their illegal practices have affected the results of American athletes.
