American Breaststroker Lilly King Calls Out Russian Cheating, And Then Kicks Ass In The Final! [CBD]

Lilly King.jpg

The entire Russian track and field team was banned from the Olympic games, but for some odd reason, the rest of their athletes were allowed to petition individually for entrance.

Yulia Efimova is a Russian breaststroker, and a damned good one. She petitioned to swim, and was allowed entry into the meet just a day before it began.

There's just one problem: she has been banned twice for the use of performance enhancing drugs; once in 2014 and once this year. Why she was allowed to compete is beyond my knowledge of international swimming, but I can guess.

Lilly King is an American breaststroker who swims for Indiana University. She holds the American records in both the 100 and 200 yard events. And she was not happy about Efimova's presence at the Olympics, and wasn't shy about it either.

Then last night she thumped the Russian in the final by more than .50 seconds.

And then doubled down afterward, saying that Americans can swim clean and still compete on the world stage!

Lilly King is my new favorite swimmer.

107 Afterwards she said she was so proud to represent America and happy she could win a medal for her country. Contrast that with the media selling fencer who keeps telling every media outlet she can find how afraid she is in America because she's a Muslim.

King will get 2 seconds of fame while she deserves years, meanwhile the fencer who lost in the second round will get a gig at NBC by month's end.

Yes. Last job, I worked with a guy who, while not exactly an LIV, would always take the side of the the Russians. Like when he told me that the Russians had a right to be in the Ukraine because history and also, we were egging on the Ukes. So when I noticed one day he had an rt.com tab open, he didn't believe me that it was basically a Putin propaganda site and also, Russia has buildings full of drones who are paid to troll news sites with pro-Putin comments. He didn't believe that, either.

You're in the pool for 10 seconds and you have to take a shower? What was up with that?
Posted by: Country Boy at August 09, 2016 02:27 PM (Idu2i)

Probably a hot shower. You go in the water, come out into a nicely comfortable low humidity environment for spectators sitting in their seats wearing street clothes while evaporative cooling takes your body temperature down about ten degrees.

No idea. But they kept switching over to the showers, so you'd see 'em dive, get out, go shower. It was just... you've got that gay Hollywood screenwriter who is married to an Olympic diver (and NBC would show him in the crowd), Greg Louganis (sp?), and then here comes Steele Johnson and the shower shots....

I didn't know they were outside. I can see your point if somebody just ran a marathon. But all I see is:

1) Walk up stairs.

2) Step forward toward edge of plank

3) Jump

4) Spend 10 seconds or less in pool

5) Take shower or jump in hot tub

At what point would they cramp up?

234 Breaststroke is the hardest event to maintain speed as you age. I looked it up the other day and if I went a personal best (set when I was 19) in the 100 meter freestyle, I'd be lucky to be in the top 2000 of my age group. If I went a personal best in the 100 meter breaststroke, I'd hold the American record.

Playes Smear the Queer all the time. Remember, Queer wasn't associated with gays until late 70s, early 80s, when they appropriated it. Queer meant really odd or out of place people who didn't fit in when I was growing up.

Mr.Jen and I watched Rugby for the first time the other night. I don't know what all the hullabaloo is about American football and concussions, we couldn't believe the hitting and tackling going on in the women's game. No helmets, no pads. Women getting absolutely trucked at full speed by other players. I mean flattened. Dog pile tackling and gouging the ball out of the players hands. Virtually no play stoppage unless a player ran out of bounds.

We were wide eyed watching it.
