    Fani Halkia

    This women has brought her PB down 4 seconds in the 400 Hurdles in 6 months..

    Questions are now being asked about whether she is clean??

    I must say im a bit sceptical after the Greek Athletics controversy and just hope that she is clean...

    She was SO MUCH better then anyone in the 400m hurdles and it just has me thinking its a bit suss...

    Not only would it make Greece more of a laughing stock but would take the Druggie Gold Medalist tally to 4...

    What do you think???

    Considering she is a failed high jumper, and a born again sprinter, and is now an Olympic champion, whether or not she is clean I don't know.

    Maybe she has trained a lot harder then Pittman and the rest, and if she is clean, well then well done to her.

    Then again Lance Armstrong won the 1999 Tour de France over 2.5 years after being diagnosed with Testicular Cancer which nearly killed him, and there were the usual drug rumours which were proven to be false.

    Look im not whinging about Jana, I never thought she was a chance... But the amount by which she beat the so called Favourite was astounding...

    I just have a really bad "gut" feeling which says something is not right...

    Petchonkina is incredibly inconsistent. I think it is too much to go and say someone is on drugs just because they ran well.

    I'm not too dissimilar a batsman to Bradman.
    Both of us have batting averages below 100.

    Mate she dropped her PB by 4 seconds in under 6 months... Does that not fill u with doubt???

    I saw this woman run in all 3 races and she was not even tiring at the end, she seemed to get faster as the race went on.. Very very fishy...

    Not as dodgy as that Spaniard long jumper.

    How did 2 judges not notice his foot being about 3 inches over the line?!

    difinitley suspisious, but the top 4 in all eventa are tested after the race, in addition to any random tests... so if nothing comes up you would think she was clean, especially considering that the sprinters had to run off to hospital to avoid tests.

    yep, but she gave it her best, which is all we can ask (at least unlike certain other athletes........... she finished the race)
