DOPING: Elvan Abeylegesse one of the 28, Osaka 2007 10.000m podium rewritten

Elvan AbeylegesseThe first name of the 28 athletes caught doped after re-test of samples has been published.

DailyMail announced few minutes ago that the Turkish runner Elvan Abeylegesse is on the list.

Earlier in the afternoon the Turkish Athletics Federation announced on Twitter that Abeylegesse was left out of the team for Beijing due to a “last minute injury“.


Dirty sample came from Osaka 2007 World Championhips, where Abeylegesse won the Silver Medal on 10.000m.

After this news the podium should be rewritten, with Kara Goucher taking the Silver and Jo Pavey jumping on the podium, but we need to wait the official confirmation.
