She finished third in the individual 200 m at the 2013 European Short Course Swimming Championships, but later received a silver medal after the winner, Yuliya Yefimova, failed a doping test.[2] She was also part of the Russian mixed medley relay team that won a bronze medal at the 2014 European Aquatics Championships.
