Tatyana Andrianova

Tatyana Nikolayevna Andrianova (Russian: Татьяна Николаевна Андрианова, born 10 December 1979 in Yaroslavl) is a Russian middle distance runner who specializes in the 800 metres. She did not compete in the 2006 and 2007 seasons, but improved on her personal best time in 800 metres in 2008.

In the 2004 Olympics in Athens, Andrianova was 5th in the final, so in the 2005 World Championships she was a favourite. When she received a bronze medal, she regarded it as a defeat. “I was so upset with that bronze,” Andrianova says. “I was already planning to get married and give birth to my child, and I was not sure I would be back on the track again. I was thinking probably it was my last World Championships. That’s why, when the things went wrong from the very beginning, it made me so nervous”.[2]

In 2006 she had her worst results but after the birth of her son Nikita, Andrianova began training as she was sure that her best results were about to come

In the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, Andrianova was hoping for a medal as she so narrowly missed out in the 2004 Olympics, however, she was placed 8th in the finals.

Doping suspension

The IAAF reported in December 2015 that Andrianova would be retroactively suspended for testing positive for the performance-enhancing drug stanozolol. The test invalidated her results from August 9, 2005 through August 8, 2007. Her bronze medal from the 2005 World Championships in Athletics was awarded to fourth-place finisher Maria Mutola of Mozambique.[1]
