Athletistic / Football. President of the All-Russian Swimming Federation (RSF) Vladimir Salnikov spoke about obtaining neutral status by world champion Yulia Efimova. She previously announced that she planned to participate in the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris (France).

On June 14, the Russian woman was granted neutral status.

“Today, apart from Yulia Efimova, there is not a single person (in swimming) who has received a neutral status. Whether she can go to the Olympics depends on her. She makes the decision herself , and in addition to the neutral status, she must meet the Olympic standards. If she wants to succeed, it is very possible that she will perform there.

My attitude is that everyone makes decisions independently based on their outlook on life, based on circumstances. This is her decision, and no one condemns or pushes her,” Salnikov quotes RIA Novosti.
