RIO DE JANEIRO, August 10. /TASS/. Russia has chalked up another Olympic medal as bicycle racer Olga Zabelinskaya clinched the 2016 Rio Olympic silver on Wednesday in the women’s road cycling individual time trial.
She completed the distance in Rio de Janeiro’s western zone Pontal lagging some five seconds behind the winner, Kristin Armstrong of the United States.
The US rider grabbed the gold with a record of 44 minutes 26.42 seconds, while Zabelinskaya raced to the finish line with a final result of 44 minutes 31.97 seconds.
Dutch cyclist Anna van der Breggen finished the distance in 44 minutes 37.80 seconds to bring her national team the Olympic bronze.
Zabelinskaya, 36, is a two-time 2012 London Olympics silver medalist and the 2002 European champion.
Earlier this summer, the International Cycling Union (UCI) barred Zabelinskaya from taking part in the 2016 Rio Olympics due to her previous doping suspension ban, which she had already sat out.
The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) ruled on August 5, right when the 2016 Olympics officially kicked off in Brazil, that the Russian cyclist was eligible to take part in the global quadrennial sports event.
