RIO DE JANEIRO, August 9. /TASS/. Russian swimmer Yuliya Yefimova, who won silver in 100 m breastroke on Monday, told a news conference she had shown the best result she could possibly show today.
Her result was 1.05.50 minutes. Lilly King of the U.S. won gold by establishing an Olympic record of 1.04.93 minutes and another American, Katie Meili, got bronze.
"I am happy to be here and it was really difficult for me to perform at these Olympic Games and particularly today," she said. "There are no words to describe what I've gone through in recent weeks. Today I showe the best results I'm capable of now."
"But right now I am happy because the thing that happened to me are really extraordinary," Yefimova said. "I made a mistake once and I served a punishment for it. What happened the other time wasn't my mistake in any way. I don't even know if I should it explain to the public now."
Earlier this year, Yuliya Yefimova was denied an entry for the Rio Olympics in connection with an infringement on the anti-doping rules dating back to 2013, for which she had a term of disciplinary punishment.
On August 4, the Court of Arbitration for Sports in Lausanne entertained her lawsuit against FINA (the international swimming federation) and the Russian Olympic Committee.
The International Olympic Committee participated in considering the case as a party concerned.
The results of the court’s scrutiny cleared the road to Rio for Yefimova.
