BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) Two-time Olympic gold medalist Lilly King is embracing her new role as the poster child for clean sport.

The Indiana University sophomore burst onto the international scene in Rio de Janeiro by taking a tough stand against competitors who dope. The comments were directed toward Russian swimmer Yulia Efimova, whom King beat to win gold in the 100-meter breaststroke.

On Friday, she told reporters she would continue to speak out against doping-related issues.

Another gold medalist who swam for the Hoosiers, Cody Miller, reiterated that King's comments reflected what everyone else was thinking.
