America’s Lilly King defeat Russia’s Yulia Efimova to get gold in the 100-meter breaststroke Monday at the Olympic Aquatics Stadium in an of the very expected contests of the Games.
King ended in 1 minute 4.93 seconds, above a half-second ahead of Efimova.
Efimova, two times banned for doping, was once more noisily booed before the race. She’s become a sign at the Games of frustration over Russia’s state-sponsored doping scandal. Katie Meili, an additional U.S. swimmer, ended third.
