RIO DE JANEIRO, August 17. /TASS/. Russian swimmer Yulia Efimova said that the Russian media have misinterpreted her interview with CNN, and that she was only planning to return to the US to get the stuff back from her Los Angeles home.
"Russia’s mass media mangled my words in the CNN interview," the swimmer told reporters.
"I said that I will come back to the US only to pick my stuff. I have an apartment there paid for another six months and I will return there to get my things. Then there will be the World Cup and later I will take a decision where to train - in Russia, in Europe, in the US or I will open my own club," she explained.
Sergey Kolmogorov, the head coach of Russia’s national swimming team, said earlier that Efimova could return to Russia where she will train under an individual program. Over the past years, Efimova has trained in the US under the guidance of American coach David Salo.
Efimova won silver in women’s 100m and 200m breaststroke at the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. The athlete is also the bronze medalist of the 2012 Olympic Games, the four-time world champion and the three-time European champion.
Earlier, Yuliya Efimova was denied entry to the Rio Olympics for violating doping rules back in 2013, for which she served a term of disciplinary punishment. On August 4, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in Lausanne satisfied her lawsuit against FINA (International Swimming Federation) and the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC). 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 the Russian swimmer.
