Beijing Perspective, August 22, 2008, Redo the Heptathlon awards! by Larry Eder


The picture above is that of current bronze medalist in the heptathlon, Hyleas Fountain of the US. Current because, due to the positive A sample for "a steroid", Lyudmila Blonska,
the silver medalist is about to be banned for life (this is her second bust). My suggestion is that the IOC rerun the awards ceremony so second and third can
get their rightful celebration! What do you think?

Lyudmila Blonska was caught on her A sample for a steroid not yet announced. On Thursday, her B sample was checked, in the presence of Liam Diack, IAAF major domo.
My suggestion has been to redo the Olympic award ceremony in order to show some respect to the women who now move up in the medal chain. I will wait to hear your responses.
