RIO DE JANEIRO, August 12 /TASS/. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has condemned athletes for the disrespectful attitude to each other during the Olympic competitions, including to Russian four-time world swimming champion Yulia Efimova, IOC Communications Director Mark Adams said at a briefing.
"This is unacceptable, we would like to remind all participants of the Games about the Olympic values. The Olympic village is the personification. Even after the event they still meet together, spend free time together, having dinner together. We believe that build bridges, not erect walls, but for many reasons, athletes are unable to shake hands with each other, it is shameful and unacceptable," he said.
