2012 Women's 800 Olympic video wrote:
In the interview Montano made it sound like she would have won if not for the dopers in the race. Below is the video - It sure looks like a 56.xx first lap did her in and not (just) the dopers.
This is not condoning the Russian dopers. They should be DQ'd
Both the men's and women's 800s in London are great videos to watch, for different reasons.
I would suggest the following: watch the women's 800, then imagine the race with the three Russians gone. The reshuffling of the results is extremely interesting.
