USA’s Lilly King Wins Gold, Beats Russian Rival She Trashed for Doping [VIDEO]


American Olympic Swimmer Lilly Kingwho made headlines Sunday with her strong words and finger-wagging assault on rival and chief competitor Yulia Efimova, backed up her tough talk in the women’s 100m breaststroke final. King set an Olympic record as she edged Efimova for the gold medal, while American Katie Meili took the bronze.

King, a 19-year-old Indiana native and first-time Olympian, led almost wire to wire as she earned her first Olympic gold medal.

After the swim, the outspoken King was at a bit of a loss for words.

“It’s incredible,” she told Michele Tafoya of NBC Sports following the race. “I really am speechless right now. I don’t even know [what to say]. We did it. I’m so excited, proud to represent USA and get the gold for our country.”

“You’re shaking your finger ‘No. 1,’ and you’ve been caught for cheating. I’m just not a fan,” King told NBC Sports after her semifinal swim.
