Lily King Calls Out Accused Drug User Yulia Efimova With “Finger Wag” Gesture At Rio 2016 Games
Lily King does not like a cheater. The American swimmer made this clear to everyone watching her compete against accused drug user, Russian swimmer Yulia Efimova, on Monday night in Rio. Efimova, who was initially banned from the Rio Olympic Games after testing positive for drugs was reinstated last Saturday night, just in time to get the “Finger Wag” of disapproval from King in the 100 meter breaststroke semifinals. When asked by a reporter what the finger wag gesture meant, King stated, “You’re shaking your finger like your number one and you’ve been caught for drug cheating and I’m just not a fan.”
King is not the only person who disapproved of Efimova being reinstated to compete in Rio. The crowd booed and hackled the Russian swimmer when it was her turn to swim and didn’t back down until she was gone from the venue.
