Adelina Sotnikova (RUS), who won the women's singles gold medal in figure skating at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics over Kim Yeon-ah, has responded to "doping allegations" against her.

"All last week I received a huge number of calls and messages asking for my opinion on the situation, which was inflated by media reports," Sotnikova wrote on Instagram on Wednesday, adding that "everyone is waiting for my official comment."

She went on to clarify her recent "doping positive" comments.

"I know that such an article will be quoted a lot and will get a lot of views," Sotnikova said. The media has already said that I admitted to using banned substances," she said, responding to the recent controversy by saying, "(I said) 'I was caught doping in 2014, I went to trial, but I didn't have any problems.

"There are a number of valid options behind the phrase 'caught doping'. It could be anything from a confirmed contaminated sample, to a collection error, to a contaminated tester, to a doping official violating protocols for sample collection, transportation, and storage," he said.

It's not that he took a banned substance, it's that there was a problem with the test tube. He also expressed frustration with the media coverage surrounding his case, saying, "Why are you twisting it and inflating it?"

He was also determined to defend his gold medal. "No one can take something important away from me. The moments on the podium at Sochi 2014, the look in the eyes of the Russian nation and fans, and the incredible feeling of performing honorably for my country."

Sotnikova won the gold medal at the 2014 Sochi 카지노사이트 Olympics, defeating Kim Yeon-ah, but was immediately mired in controversy over the judging. Sotnikova retired from the sport in March 2020 after an uneventful career.

More recently, she was at the center of controversy when she appeared on a Russian YouTube channel and said, "I tested positive for doping at the Sochi Olympics," and "I was not disciplined because the second test sample did not reveal any problems."

The Korean Sports Ministry and the Korea Anti-Doping Agency (KADA) have launched an investigation into Sotnikova's doping allegations. If the International Olympic Committee (IOC) accepts the KADA's request, Sotnikova's first and second samples could be retested.

Meanwhile, the YouTube video in which Sotnikova spoke about the doping allegations has since been removed following the controversy.
