Lilly King Shades 'Drug Cheating' Russian, Wins Gold

By

Was there just a solar eclipse in Rio? Because the shade that US swimmer Lilly King just threw could cover most of South America.

Over the last few days she's been waving her finger at Russian swimmer Yulia Efimova, who had failed a drug test this past year. In response, Yulia wagged her own finger at Lilly after finishing the 100-meter breaststroke semifinals, while Lilly watched in the ready room. Ooh, returned to sender!

Did you think the finger-shaking ended there? Oh, you did? Well, you're oh so very wrong.

While the cameras on her, Lilly shook her own pointer finger at Yulia while Yulia was doing the same. Is this a reality show, because the drama! My god, the drama!

By the by, with all this finger-wagging, I think Dikembe Mutombo would be very proud.

Afterwards, Lilly told a reporter,

You're shaking your finger 'number one,' and you've been caught for drug cheating. I'm just not a fan.

Wow, looks like Yulia is not getting a Facebook invitation to Lilly's birthday party.

Well, all the taunting over who is number one has reached a head, because Lilly has now officially won the gold in the 100-meter breaststroke. Congratulations Lilly, and go Team USA!
