A reporter in the Wall Street Journal, in a mixed zone, asked reporters if Murphy had any doping suspicions against Rylo when he met the athletes.
– I have 15 thoughts, 13 of which will make me finish in the glue. I’m not trying to get involved, but going to a whole year and swimming a race that is not clean is stressful, said the American who won the 100 and 200 meter backstroke at Rio 2016.
Rylov won both titles and now he had to win bronze in the 100m and silver in the 200m. He had two Russians in the 100m backstroke
In front of him.
England’s bronze medalist Luke Greenbank asked a British reporter about Murphy’s comments. He replied:
– It is frustrating to know that there is a government-funded doping program and that it will not be done for many more years.
Russia has been suspended as a nation at the Olympics since the doping scandal over the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, but Russian athletes who can prove they are clean can stand up and represent Russia’s Olympic team.
Prior to Rio 2016, there were allegations against Russian swimmers and criticism that they were allowed to participate. This method is mainly about breast stroke swimmer Julia Zefimova, who was previously suspended for doping in her life.
He defended himself
At the official press conference, Ryan Mubry tried to minimize the matter, saying it was not allegations.
However, Yevgeny Rylov felt compelled to defend himself, according to Reuters:
– I always undergo doping tests and will never forgive myself if I take something. I don’t know how to deal with this. I don’t blame anything.
In Tokyo, however, 330 Russian athletes, including Rylov, have volunteered to participate.
