US Swimmer Lilly King Explains Finger Wag at Russia's Yulia Efimova

USA Swimmer Lilly King put Russian swimmer Yulia Efimova in her place during the 100-meter breaststroke semifinals at the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics on Sunday (August 7).

“Basically, what happened this morning was that I finished and then I waved my finger a little bit, because that’s kind of how I am. Then tonight just now Yulia got done with her swim and I am watching in the ready room – and there she is there shaking her finger. So then I got done and I beat her time so I waved my finger again. People probably think I am serving it up a little bit but that is just how I am,” Lilly explained to USA Today. “You’re shaking your finger number one and you’ve been caught for drug-cheating. I’m just not a fan.”

Yulia served a 16-month suspension which ended last year, and then was caught doping again this year, though that was overturned.

The final race for the 100-meter breaststroke will be happening tonight.

    She should show some class. If her swimming is better she doesn’t need to call out her opponents. Just shup up and swim

    Her swimming IS better, she is mocking her because Yulia was doping both times and STILL got her ass beat. When you are clean and number 1, you can say/do whatever you want!!!

    I don’t believe a single one of them is clean. Just because you aren’t caught doesn’t mean you’re clean. Everyone thought Marion Jones is clean
