Anju feat gets official nod

Anju Bobby George has been officially recognised as the gold winner in long jump at the 2005 World Athletics Final in Monaco.

Anju was elevated to the first place after Tatyana Kotova, who won the gold then, was disqualified for doping on a re-test of her sample from the 2005 World Championships in Helsinki.

On Tuesday, Paul Hardy, IAAF Competition Director, wrote to Athletics Federation of India secretary C K Valson, confirming the news.

“The IAAF is happy to confirm that due to subsequent disqualification, Anju Bobby George is now first at the 2005 Grand Prix Final in Monaco,” Hardy wrote.
