INDIANAPOLIS -- Team USATF’s Brenda Martinez and Alysia Montaño have been upgraded to medal positions from the 2011 and 2013 IAAF World Championships. 

 

Based on the confirmation of recent doping control tests, the results of two women’s 800m events staged at past editions of IAAF World Championships have now been amended. 


2012 U.S. Olympian Montaño has been upgraded in the women’s 800m to a bronze medal from the 2011 IAAF World Championships, as well as a bronze medal from the 2013 IAAF World Championships. 2016 U.S. Olympian Martinez has been upgraded to silver in the women’s 800m from the 2013 IAAF World Championships.

 

The IAAF's new approach to honor these athletes provides them the opportunity to receive their new medal at a ceremony at the IAAF World Athletics Championships in Doha, Qatar. A date has yet to be released to the public.
