A retest on the samples of the Olympic Games Beijing 2008 brought the most recent doping scandal. 31 athletes are part of the most recent doping scandal. And it seems that medals will be reassigned if the test on sample B will also be positive. For the throwing community, it can get interesting. Maria Abakumova, who won the silver medal at the Olympic Games 2008, might loose her medal. The German javelin thrower Christina Obergföll would then move up the ladder and grab silver instead of bronze. And the British thrower Goldie Sayers who was not part of the medal ceremony will get the bronze medal via post. In addition, Ivan Yushakov who placed 10th in the shot put will also be eliminated from the lists.
