Quote Of The Day
“I’ve heard nothing from European Athletics, not even to do with the ban or being upgraded. I don’t know if it’s because the sport’s not proud of it when it does happen and it’s just, kind of, trying to do it quietly so that people don’t know about it.”
“… I don’t think this is a surprise, I think it happens all the time. … I don’t know if you’re just meant to sit around and wait for them to decide when they want to give you it.”
– UK 800 runner Lynsey Sharp talking about how she still hasn’t received her 2013 European Championships gold medal from Russia’s Yelena Arzhakova 6 months after her doping ban. Arzhakova initially finished ahead of Sharp, but then tested positive.
