Marilyn Okoro set for belated bronze
Just as the British athletics team are preparing to fly out to the European Indoor Championships, which open in Gothenburg on Friday morning, another medal is about to belatedly wing its way into the GB haul from the last championships.
Less than two weeks ago Jenny Meadows received the gold medal she had been due following the announcement in July last year that Yevgeniya Zinurova, the Russian who beat her to victory in the 800m final in Paris two years ago, had been retrospectively disqualified for failing a drugs test. Now Meadows' British team-mate Marilyn Okoro is in line for third place – and a bronze medal – following reports that another Russian, Yuliya Rusanova, has been caught in the "blood passport" examination drugs net.
Confirmation was awaited last night but UK Athletics can expect the GB medal tally from Paris to rise from eight to nine.
