Notes[edit]

  1. ^ On 2 August 2008 the International Olympic Committee formally stripped the US team of their gold medals following the admission of Antonio Pettigrew that he had been using performance-enhancing drugs while competing in Sydney and subsequently returned his medal. Medals were reallocated on 21 July 2012 [1]
  2. ^ On 5 October 2007 Marion Jones of the United States admitted to having taken performance enhancing drugs prior to the 2000 Summer Olympics. On 9 October she relinquished her medals to the United States Olympic Committee and on 12 December, the International Olympic Committee formally stripped her of her medals. In 2009, her medals were reawarded as follows
    100 metres
    1. not awarded
    2. Greece Ekaterini Thanou 11.12 and Jamaica Tayna Lawrence 11.18
    3. Jamaica Merlene Ottey 11.19
    Though the IAAF lists Thanou as the first-place finisher in the women's 100m race, she was not awarded a gold medal by the IOC, the IOC choosing instead to upgrade Lawrence and Ottey, but leave the gold-medal slot vacant.
    200 metres
    1. The Bahamas Pauline Davis-Thompson 22.27
    2. Sri Lanka Susanthika Jayasinghe 22.28
    3. Jamaica Beverly McDonald 22.35
    All three athletes were upgraded from their original medal position.
    Long jump
    1. Germany Heike Drechsler
    2. Italy Fiona May
    3. Russia Tatyana Kotova 6.83
    Kotova, the original fourth-place finisher, was upgraded to the bronze medal.
  3. ^ a b On 23 November 2007, the IAAF recommended to the IOC Executive Board to disqualify the USA women's 4x100 m and 4x400 m relay teams after Marion Jones admitted to having taken performance enhancing drugs prior to the Games. On 12 December, the IOC disqualified Jones and stripped her of her relay medals but it did not disqualify the U.S. relay teams. On 10 April 2008, the IOC disqualified both U.S. relay teams and asked for Jones' teammates' medals to be returned.[2] France (Linda Ferga, Muriel Hurtis, Fabe Dia, Christine Arron, Sandra Citte*) finished fourth in the 4×100 m relay in a time of 42.42, and Nigeria (Olabisi Afolabi, Opara Charity, Rosemary Okafor, Falilat Ogunkoya-Osheku, Doris Jacob*) finished fourth in the 4×400 m relay in a time of 3:23.80, but no medals were redistributed, the IOC opting to leave the medal spots forfeited by the U.S. teams vacant. All members of the U.S. relay teams except Nanceen Perry (and Marion Jones) then appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport who on 16 July 2010 ruled in favor of them.[3] Their medals were then restored to them.
  4. ^ The IOC report (page 447 of 548) incorrectly states that Pantelimon finished fourth, despite having an identical jumping record.
