Overview by IAAF  
The only athletes further than 20m prior to Osaka were Ostapchuk, Lammert and Vili. Ostapchuk scared herself in the qualifying, throwing 18.23 to become the 12th qualifier by a margin of just four centimetres. Buoyed up, the Belarusian opened the final with 20.04 to head Vili 19.89 and Lammert 19.33 at the end of round one. Kleinert moved into bronze medal position in round two with 19.45, while Vili tried to make inroads into Ostapchuk’s lead. Her 19.74 in round two was followed by 19.80 in the next round, and 19.95 in round five, while Kleinert made a further improvement to 19.77, also in the penultimate round. Li slipped by Lammert for fourth with 19.38 in the final round. The imposing (1.93/121Kg) Vili then produced a Commonwealth record of 20.54 to move into a big lead. Ostapchuk, showing great competitive instincts, reacted by putting her season’s best of 20.48 to end a superb final round. As reported for Helsinki 2005, the Belarusian had all her results annulled for a period two years up to a fortnight before competing in Osaka. In 2012 she was quickly stripped of the Olympic title after failing another test, then in October 2017 the newly-formed Athletics Integrity Unit reported further adverse findings in her doping control samples at Osaka 2007 and the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Her punishment: disqualification of all results from August 26, 2007 to August 5, 2012. She had already been banned/disqualified for two years before that period, and for four years afterwards.
