Russian Olympian Darya Klishina Is Really Good At The Long Jump, Also Looks Great In A Bikini

Russian long jumper Darya Klishina almost didn’t get to compete in the Summer Olympics in Rio. As you may have noticed, there aren’t very many Russian athletes competing in track and field this year. In fact, Klishina is the ONLY one competing.

Much like Russian swimmer Yulia Efimova, Klishna was initially banned from competing only to get a reprieve at the last moment. 67 of her fellow Russian track and field athletes were left home, but Klishna won her appeal and like Efimova has been allowed to compete in Brazil.

And compete she has done, as she had the 9th best jump during qualifications and will be participating in the finals of the long jump tonight.

The 25-year-old has been based out of Florida since 2011 so the testing she received for doping was determined to have made her exempt from the ban the rest of her team received.

Oh yeah, Darya Klishina also happens to do a little modeling in addition to excelling at jumping long distances. A quick look at her Instagram and it’s pretty easy to see why.
