Klishina has filed an appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport. She said in a statement: “I am a clean athlete and have proved that already many times and beyond any doubt.
“Based in the US for three years now, I have been almost exclusively tested outside of the anti-doping system in question.
I am falling victim to those who created a system of manipulating our beautiful sport and is guilty of using it for political purposes. I will take every possible effort to protect my clean image as an athlete."
