No bombing,no ducking, no doping Russian swimmers under the microscope

Russian swimming is under the microscope after British newspaper The Times splashed an article alleging that the sport has engaged in systematic doping for years.

The accusations come just days after multiple World Champion Yuliya Efimova provided the second positive doping test of her career.

Russian track and field athletes have already been banned from competing in the Rio Olympics.

The World Anti-Doping Agency WADA says it will investigate the claims and if proven Russian swimmers could also face an Olympic ban.

The Russian swimming Federation denies any systematic doping programme.
