RIO DE JANEIRO, August 11. /TASS/. Russian swimmer Yuliya Yefimova, who has won silver in 100 m breaststroke at the Rio Olympics, said on Wednesday he has already taken three doping tests. However, in her words, she thought she there would be more.
"I have taken three doping test at the Olympic Games already. As a matter of fact, I thought I would have to take more. However it’s not over till it’s over," she said in an interview with Russia’s Match TV channel.
Yefimova will compete the 200m breaststroke semi-finals.
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.
