Women Hammer Throw - History

The medallists from Paris – Moreno, Kuzenkova and Montebrun – were again favoured to win the medals, though new world record holder Lysenko was clearly a contender. These four were the leading qualifiers.
The opening three rounds of the final were low-key, with Moreno (70.88) leading from Kuzenkova (70.70) and Lysenko (70.30). Montebrun – in sixth place at halfway – warmed things up by taking the lead with 71.41 in round four. In the next round the tall, athletic (1.86/81Kg) Lysenko reached 72.46, to be overtaken immediately by Kuzenkova (74.03) and Moreno (73.08). The Olympic Champion increased her lead over the double World Champion, throwing 75.10 in the last round, her best for five years, while Moreno responded with 73.04.
Almost eight years later, in March 2013, the winner was exposed as a drug cheat when it was announced that a re-analysis of her Helsinki doping control sample – using the most up-to-date analytical techniques – had revealed an adverse finding. Besides being suspended in 20013-2015, all her results for two years from August 2005 were disqualified, starting with those in Helsinki. Moreno therefore became a triple champion.
