Hammer thrower Betty Heidler subsequently receives the silver medal at the London Olympics instead of her bronze medal, which she won in a dramatic competition. The Russian Olympic champion Tatyana Lysenko was disqualified for doping.
Subsequent new medal color joy and sorrow
Betty Heidler comments on her subsequent change to the medal color: “On the one hand, I’m happy, on the other, I’m upset. Everything connected with the awarding of a silver medal at the Olympic Games was taken from me. On the one hand the recognition of my performance in the competition itself, on the other hand the economic factor, which is undoubtedly connected with the placement and color of the medal.”
