2005 10th IAAF World Championships - Helsinki - Women's Shot Put

 

 

Host City: Helsinki, Finland Format: Qualifying round (18.30 or top 12 to final) (Aug 12)

Nations participating: 196
Athletes participating: 1,891
    Main venue: Helsinki Olympic Stadium
Overview by IAAF   Helsinki Olympic Stadium 
In five of the previous seven championships, the title had been won by more than half a metre. Ostapchuk, the only thrower to reach 20m ensured a similar win for herself with her opening throw in the final of 20.30. Of the finalists only Krivelyova (with a best of 21.06 from 1992) had ever thrown further, and only Cumbá, with 18.37, was within 2m at the end of round one. Ostapchuk had three other fair throws: 20.13, 20.23 and 20.51. Round three saw the other medals decided as Ryabinkina threw 19.64 two throws before Vili managed 19.62. Krivelyova finished fifth, but all performances by her between August 2004 & 2006 were annulled when a re-test of the doping sample she had given at the 2004 Olympic Games proved positive.
 Then in March 2013, it was announced that a re-test of the samples taken in Helsinki had shown adverse findings for several athlete,s including Ostapchuk. She had in the meantime been stripped of a gold at the 2012 London Olympics because of a further infraction. In February 2014, he IAAF confirmed the Belarusian’s punishment package. She was banned for four years in 2012-2016 and all her results between Helsinki 2005 and August 14, 2007 were annulled. So after nine years, Ryabinkina became the rightful World Champion, from Vili and Kleinert.
 

The Women's Shot Put event at the 2005 World Championships in Athletics was held at the Helsinki Olympic Stadium on August 12 and August 13. The event was won by Nadzeya Ostapchuk of Belarus but when samples taken from her during those games were retested in 2013, they revealed she had been doping.

After revision, Olga Ryabinkina from Russia and Valerie Vili from New Zealand were promoted to gold and silver respectively. The bronze medal was awarded to Nadine Kleinert from Germany who originally finished fifth since all the results of the fourth-placer Svetlana Krivelyova of Russia between August 18, 2004, and August 17, 2006, were annulled in a separate doping case.

Event Report - Women Shot Put Final

Ostapchuk Gets It Right

At the third time of asking Nadezhda Ostapchuk BLR got it right and carried off her first gold from a major championships. A dominant junior in the nineties she had missed out in both Paris (silver) and the Olympics (4th) but this time there was to be no mistake as she was the only one to breach the 20-metre mark, finishing the job off with a demonstration 20.51 in the last throw of the competition. Silver was claimed by Olga Ryabinkina RUS in 19.64 with Valerie Vili NZL, claiming her first major medal just two centimetres down.

“I didn’t feel any pressure coming here,” said Ostapchuk. “Already during warm-up I had a feeling that everything is going to be OK. With my first throw I got the season’s second best result and I was pretty sure that the others would not be able to beat it. I was aiming at 21 metres but it was too cold for that.”

She may have failed in the big ones so far, but it did not show as Ostapchuk stepped up to the circle at the first time of asking and laid down a 20m30cm marker. It seemed to make the rest freeze as the best anyone could do with their first opportunity was an 18.37 from Olympic champion Yumileidi Cumba CUB.

But shot putting is all about finding the range and round two saw her rivals settling down. The most durable putter of them all, seven-time finalist Krivelyova, went into silver with 18.47 only to be trumped by a 19.34 from Russian champion Ryabinkina who increased to 19.64 to secure her medal. “Before the competition I thought I would be third,” said Ryabinkina. “The silver was therefore a positive surprise.”

Former world junior champion Vili, who had led the qualifiers with a personal best 19.87, was well below her form of the previous day and making clear signs of frustration to her coach. But in round three she was to slip into a bronze medal position with 19.62 with a throw that dislodged Olympic silver Nadine Kleinert GER. The German had gone over 20m for the first time last month but was finding it hard to reproduce that form.

It was then just a question of whether anyone could mix it with the medallists. But it was not to be, as one lacklustre attempt after another failed to change the order. Vili became only the second New Zealander to win a medal in these championships after discus thrower Beatrice Faumuina claimed gold in 1997.

Event Report - Women Shot Put Qualification

No fuss, no bother, just one heave and the favourites to fight out the medals went through to the final. Nadezhda Ostapchuk BLR has outdistanced her rivals this summer by almost 70 centimetres, but championships are a different matter. Despite her fine record as a junior she has flattered to deceive in the big ones. Two years ago in Paris she took silver and was no better than fourth in the Olympics.

Had it not been for defending champion Svetlana Krivelyova RUS and her late 20.24 coming into Helsinki, there would seem to be little opposition for Ostapchuk on distance alone and the Russian was just as insolent as the Belorussian in the ease with which she hurled the implement far beyond the qualification tape at the first time of asking. The third 20m-plus thrower of the season to qualify without delay was Nadine Kleinert GER who caught the no-nonsense mood.

Whether it was the sun shining after so much rain that put everyone in a positive frame of mind was hard to say but there was a string of fine throws, not least the Area Record by Valerie Vili NZL who had been tipped to make a name for herself in the Finnish capital. As it turned out she trumped far more famous names with the longest throw of them all, 19.87.

Lurking in the wings, though, is one of the championship contenders par excellence, Yumileidi Cumba CUB. After following suit with a first-time qualifying heave she put her tongue out to a nearby cameraman. Not only is she a threat, she is also relaxed, which could spell bad news for her rivals.
