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 Iâ€™ll wake up tomorrow and say: “Thatâ€™s it, I want to get married.” It depends on me and whatâ€™s happening around me. So far Iâ€™m not planning to go anywhere, the 2020 Olympics are ahead, and who knows, then thereâ€™s the year 2024,” the 26-year-old swimmer said.
“The world is changing. I wanted to stop at 16, then at 18, and Iâ€™m still here,” she added.
