Klishina is not eager to go home.
Russian athlete, the person involved in doping scandal Darya Klishina will continue training in the United States after the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
"I will continue to train in America, and I am not going to change anything. After the Games I have a couple more starts, then I'm going to rest a little, well, and then get back to training", Klishina said.
Klishina, who was the only Russian athlete allowed to participate in the Games, took the ninth place in the finals in the long jump.
The International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) suspended her of the Games, but two days later the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) overturned the decision, after which the IAAF gave Klishina the opportunity to represent Russia in Rio.
