14-year old swimmer Eneli Jefimova finished her last discipline at the Tokyo Olympics on Wednesday, finishing 27th in the 200 m breaststroke.

The 14-year old Estonian finished with a time of 2.27,87. She would have needed a time of 2.24,27 to make it to the semi-finals in the event.

"I went in with the plan of enjoying it, but it was difficult. I did enjoy the first 150 m, but I was very tired and did not enjoy it as much for the final 50 m, when I started to pick up the pace," Jefimova said, adding that she did not feel much pressure.

"I had no goal in mind. I thought I would start calmly, because my finish is stronger than the others. If I started faster, I would not have enough in the tank for the finish. I can be satisfied overall," the 14-year old wrapped up her final day at the Tokyo Olympics.

South African swimmer Tatjana Schoenmaker set a new Olympic record with 2.19,16 in the preliminary rounds.
