We have only 1 athlete qualified for the Indoor World Championships and it's our High-Jumper Airinė Palšytė. She could possibly snatch a medal here if the nerves don't get to her, though they usually do.

Olympic 1,500m silver medalist Gamze Bulut of Turkey is under investigation by the International Association of Athletics Federations for a possible doping violation, the fifth runner from the 2012 Olympic final to face drug allegations.

Alptekin is, isn't she? Or at least CAS already announced last year that will happen..

Bulut looks like she could lose it as well, Tomasheva and Aregawi won't. So gold for Jamal, silver for Tomasheva ( :lol: ) and bronze for Aregawi ( :lol: ).

She is officially banned but didn't return medal yet (maybe Turkish money is the reason?)

Maybe they thought "We might as well wait until Bulut is stripped of her medal just like Alptekin already is, so we can get it straight to Jamal" :lol:

You know, a purely logistic matter :d
