Rio de Janeiro, Aug 13 (IANS) The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has condemned athletes for the disrespectful attitude to each other during the Olympics, including towards Russian four-time world swimming champion Yulia Efimova, IOC’s communications director Mark Adams has said.

“This is unacceptable, we would like to remind all participants of the Games about the Olympic values. Even after the event they still meet together, spend free time together, having dinner together,” he said on Friday, reports Tass.

“We believe that build bridges, not erect walls, but for many reasons, athletes are unable to shake hands with each other, it is shameful and unacceptable,” he said.
