Overview by IAAF  1980_olympic_stadium.jpg
Although Kondratyeva ran a disputed 10.87 in June in Leningrad, Göhr, the European Champion and world record holder at 10.88, was favourite, especially as the US-led boycott had kept out the 1979 world number one Evelyn Ashford. However, it was the Russian was fastest in each of the preliminary rounds, with 11.13, 11.06 and 11.11, beating Göhr (11.18) in the semifinal, after Göhr and Auerswald had run 11.12 quarter-finals. In the final Haglund and Kondratyeva were off quickest, with Göhr slowed by shaky starting blocks. The Swede led at halfway, with Kondratyeva second, gritting her teeth at a hamstring twinge. As Haglund faded, Göhr moved to the front and Kondratyeva found a burst of speed in the last 15m to overhaul Göhr at the line. Limping after the race, Kondratyeva had to withdraw from the 200m and relay. The other GDR sprinters had swooped on Haglund, with Auerswald passing her in the last few metres for the bronze medal. In 2004, Kondrayeva’s gold medal went up for sale on eBay for $3000.
