Coach Eteri Tutberidze said she is waiting for an apology from the president of the International Olympic Committee for allegations of mistreatment of Kamila Valieva at the 2022 Olympics for not hugging her student after the skate.
"At that time, Camila kept a little aloof. You can't hug someone who doesn't want to. And the problem is not that she failed. On the other hand, we have no right to give up. I just asked her why she refused the second element. She simply refused to fight. In addition, the Olympic Games are a holiday. Many athletes dream of being in her place. I can’t stand the tantrums of athletes. Then we sat together in the locker room for a long time. This accusation of Thomas Bach is unfair, I expect an apology, " said Tutberidze.
Valieva took fourth place in women's singles at the 2022 Olympics.
