Russian swimmer Efimova might continue to compete in 2024 Olympics


Five-time world swimming champion Yuliya Yefimova may make a decision concerning her professional career in a spontaneous manner, and she may stay to participate in the 2024 Olympic Games, she said in an interview with TASS.

“I will definitely be swimming a year after Tokyo [the 2020 Olympics – TASS], we will see. Maybe I’ll wake up tomorrow and say: “That’s it, I want to get married.” It depends on me and what’s happening around me. So far I’m not planning to go anywhere, the 2020 Olympics are ahead, and who knows, then there’s the year 2024,” the 26-year-old swimmer said.

“The world is changing. I wanted to stop at 16, then at 18, and I’m still here,” she added.
