KAZAN, August 9. /TASS/. Russian champion swimmer Yulia Yefimova said on Sunday there is utter mess in the leadership of the Russian Swimming Federation.
"No one knows who is the chief and who commands whom," she told TASS.
Earlier on Sunday, Yefimova, the four-time world champion, said it would be better for the national team if the federation were led by four-time Olympic champion Alexander Popov.
Russia’s swimmer team has won one gold, one silver and one bronze medals at the 2015 FINA (International Swimming Federation) World Championships coming to a close in Russia’s Kazan.
Speaker of the Russian State Duma lower parliament house and chairman of the supervisory council of the Russian Swimming Federation Sergey Naryshkin told TASS on Sunday that no reshuffles are needed in the Russian Swimming Federation.
Naryshkin reacted to the critical remarks of Yefimova.
"You know, she is too young," he said.
He also noted that the Russian national team’s performance at the championships in Kazan requires professional analysis.
"A more profound an professional analysis is needed. For instance, it is necessary to see how many Russian swimmers qualified for the finals at previous championships and now. It is up to the federation to do that," he said.
Russian swimmers performed worse than expected at the 2015 FINA (International Swimming Federation) World Championships ending in Russia’s Kazan. Russia won one glod, one silver and two bronze medals.
