The only Russian athlete admitted to the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Darya Klishina, was left without a medal in the long jump, reports Eurosport.

After three attempts Darya Klishina ranked only ninth with a score of 6.63 meters.

Klishina is the only athlete from Russia that gained admission to the Olympic Games in Rio.

Four years ago, the Russian national team in athletics won 14 (6-3-5) medals.

The Russian national team in athletics was disqualified from international competitions because of the doping scandal.

There was an exception for Klishina as she lives, trains and deliver samples for doping in the US, but not in Russia.
