A Southern, hot-blooded temperamental individual
Except that she was already treated with kid gloves by CAS, so I feel like the IOC won't want to fight it anymore if she's given a slap on the wrist at least.Honestly, I'm not sure but that they won't wind up with a 60-day ban and strip ROC of the team gold. The only person who will lose out on an Olympic medal in that scenario is Kondratiuk and he's young enough to have a shot at one in 2026. If she's found guilty, there is no way the IOC is going to stand for her becoming an Olympic champion and they will appeal.
I don't disagree, I just think you'll be hardpressed to find a federation who wants to fight for their skater to move up one non-medal winning spot.Except that she was placed fourth. I am sure that the skaters who finished behind her in the overall standings would prefer one place higher. Making the top ten sounds a heck of a lot better than finishing eleventh.
