Keith Connor - 1980 Moscow Olympics - Triple Jump

Athletics - 1980 Moscow Olympics - Men's Triple Jump Final
Great Britain's Keith Connor on the way to fourth place at the Grand Arena of the Central Lenin Stadium, Moscow, USSR.
This triple jump final was highly controversial, with apparent blatant cheating by the Russian officials resulting in a 1-2 for home athletes Jaak Uudmae (gold) and Viktor Saneyev (silver). The two favourites, Australia's Ian Campbell and Brazilian world record holder Joao Carlos de Oliveira, had nine of their twelve jumps in the final called as fouls. One of Campbell's efforts would have broken the Olympic world record and won the competition, but was adjudged a foul because he he dragged his foot on the step phase - this is almost impossible to do at that speed, and was not evident in the television replays. de Oliveira had to settle for the bronze, while Campbell finished fifth

Tatyana Kazankina wins 800m gold at the 1976 Montreal Olympics

Athletics - 1976 Montreal Olympics - Women's 800m Final
The Soviet Union's Tatyana Kazankina (#340) approaches the line to win the gold medal in a new World Record of 1:54.94, with Bulgaria's Nikolina Shtereva (#45), East Germany's Elfi Zinn (#168) and Anita Weiss (#166) and the Soviet Union's Svetlana Styrkina (352) behind in the Olympic Stadium, Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
Shtereva took the silver, Zinn the bronze, while Weiss was fourth and Styrkina fifth. The first four runners all broke the existing world record in the fastest 800m race to-date at that time.
Kazankina would also win the 1500m at the Montreal Games, and would defend that title in 1980. Her career came to an abrupt end in September 1984 when she refused to take a drug test and was banned for 18 months
