Stephanie Graf, Vienna, 2008
|2000 Sydney||800 m|
|2001 Edmonton||800 m|
|1998 Budapest||800 m|
Graf finished second to Maria de Lurdes Mutola in the women's 800 meters at both the 2000 Olympics in Sydney and the 2001 World Athletics Championships in Edmonton, Alberta. Her time from the 2000 Olympics, 1:56.64 minutes, is the current Austrian 800 metres record.
Proceedings were issued against Graf by the Austria's anti-doping authority in May 2010. Following the revelation that the Humanplasma laboratory had aided around 30 athletes with blood doping practices, Graf admitted that her blood had been taken at the lab, but insisted that it had never been re-injected (which would have improved her performances).
In June 2010 Graf was suspended for two years for the attempted use of a prohibited method.
