Gulfiya Raifovna Khanafeyeva (Russian: Гульфия Раифовна Ханафеева, Tatar: Cyrillic Гөлфия Рәиф кызы Хәнәфиева, Latin Gөlfiə Rəif qızı Xənəfieva, born on 12 June 1982) is a Russian hammer thrower of Tatar ethnicity.

Her international breakthrough came following her world record breaking throw of 77.26 metres from 12 June 2006 in Tula.[1] She beat fellow Russian Tatyana Lysenko, however Lysenko threw 77.41 metres on 24 June in Zhukovsky to regain the world record. Later in 2006 Khanafeyeva won a silver medal with 74.50 metres at the 2006 European Championships, her first international medal.

In 2007 Khanafeyeva improved to 77.36 m.[2]

She participated in the 2012 Summer Olympics in London but did not qualify for the finals.

Doping[edit]

In 2002 IAAF announced that Khanafeyeva had tested positive at the Russian Championships and that she had received a 3-month doping ban.[3]

On 31 July 2008, Khanafeyeva was one of seven female Russian athletes suspended by the IAAF, due to doping test irregularities.[4][5]

On 20 October 2008, it was announced that Khanafeyeva, along with 6 other Russian athletes would receive two-year doping bans for manipulating drug samples.[6]

On 30 March 2017, she was disqualified, and her 2012 Olympis results were annulled, after her second probe came positive for banned substances.[7]
