Morozov, Ustinova, Simonova, Martynova Missing From Russian Fed Olympic Trials List

Vladimir Morozov - by Patrick B. Kraemer

The Olympic plans of five of Russia’s leading swimmers appear to hang in the balance because they have not registered a top-40-ranked long-course metres swim in an eligibility window for qualification to their national championships and Rio 2016 trials.

The absence of any single long-course metres performances from Vladimir Morozov, Daria K. Ustinova*, Vitalina Simonova and Yana Martynova, and a 50.74 100m free as the only swim registered for Alexandre Sukhorukov, this year, is reinforced by a Russian federation list of swimmers eligible to race at National Championships and Olympic trials.

hmmmm… mildonium?


If mildonium is the truth, one less team for the 4×100 relay on Rio..


I think only 1/4-1/3 of the names of the 99 meldonium-positive athletes have come out so far.
