In 2005 this was the top 4
1. Tatyana Tomashova 4:00.35 (SB)
2. Olga Yegorova 4:01.46
3. Bouchra Ghézielle 4:02.45
4. Yelena Soboleva 4:02.48
all went on to be banned
of course in 2003 Hayley Tullet took Bronze behind Cakir esque Süreyya Ayhan who also won the 2002 euros and Tomoshova!
Mariem Alaoui Selsouli leads the rankings she was banned and as has been discussed so has european champion who follows in Ayhan's footsteps with her tactics Asli Çakir Alptekin.
Tatyana Tomashova has made the russian team after returning from her very public ban (no shame!) as has Elena Soboleva who hasnt made the team!
Anyway I just things its a shame if the race goes back to how it was 2002-2006 Dehiba isnt showing form thank goodnes.. but the womens 1500m just feels such a tainted events! I will feel very sorry for the talented brits.
