Team USA figure skating pair Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir have spoken out against Kamila Valieva’s inclusion in the 2022 Winter Olympics.
“Seeing her on the Olympic ice right now with everything we discovered over the last week, I didn’t think it was going to happen. And again I don’t think it should be happening,” said Lipinski.
Valieva is a talented young skater and a favorite in the events she competes in, especially after leading the short program.
Lipinski was a gold medalist at the 1998 Nagano Winter Olympics in the singles event, while Weir represented the USA in 2006 and 2010.
