The World Anti-Doping Agency has referred the case of Russian figure skater Kamila Valieva to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, WADA President Witold Banka said Tuesday.

Banka had warned the Russian Anti-Doping Agency on Oct. 27 that her case, relating to a failed drug test from December 2021 that was revealed during the Beijing Winter Olympics this February, would be taken to CAS unless it was resolved promptly.

RUSADA has not disclosed whether there has been a penalty imposed on the skater, who was 15 at the time of the games, or other related information, stating it is a confidential matter.

"Despite putting RUSADA under formal notice to resolve the Kamila Valieva case promptly, no progress was made. Therefore, I can confirm WADA has now officially referred it directly to the Court of Arbitration for Sport," Banka wrote on his Twitter account.

Valieva won a gold medal in the team event as a member of the Russian Olympic Committee in Beijing before her failed drug test came to light.

She appealed a provisional suspension and was allowed to compete in the women's individual event but finished fourth.

The medal ceremony for the team event, in which the United States provisionally won the silver medal and Japan bronze, is yet to take place.
