Serbian star Čavić fires warning to swimmer switching nationality from Russia

Retired Serbian swimming star Milorad ÄŒavić has fired a warning to world record holder Arkady Vyatchanin after it was announced the Russian wants to compete for the Balkan nation, claiming the Serbian Swimming Federation is “plagued with corruption”.

Vyatchanin announced his intention to leave the Russian national team in April 2013 and to begin competing for another country following a fallout with the Russian Swimming Federation.

But ÄŒavić, who was just one one-hundredth of a second behind the formidable Michael Phelps in the 100 metres butterfly final at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, tried to persuade the 30-year old to opt for a country other than Serbia.”
