    Confusion looms over the final standings of the figure skating team event at the 2022 Winter Olympics, as Canada and Russia take their cases to Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).

    CAS revealed that numerous appeals have been lodged regarding how the International Skating Union (ISU) altered the results following Kamila Valieva’s disqualification due to a doping violation.

    In an unexpected turn of events, both Canadian and Russian teams are contesting their positions on the podium after Valieva’s ban reshuffled the rankings.
