Biography

Tatyana Lebedeva was the top female long and triple jumper of the world in the 2000s. She started out as a triple jumper, but began competing in long jump after giving birth to a daughter in 2002. Lebedeva first rose into prominence in 1998, winning silvers in triple jump at both the IAAF World Cup and Goodwill Games. At the 2000 Olympics, she also won triple jump silver. In 2001 she won the triple jump at the World Championships, a feat she repeated in 2003. In 2001, she won the triple jump at the Goodwill Games and in 2003 won again at the IAAF World Athletics Final. At the 2004 Olympics, Lebedeva won gold in long jump and bronze in triple jump. In 2005, she missed the World Championships due to injury, but later that season won the IAAF Golden League and in 2006, Lebedeva won the European triple jump title. After missing the 2005 World Championships, she competed at the 2007 and 2009 World Championships, winning the long jump title in 2007, triple jump silver in 2007 and long jump silver in 2009.

At the 2008 Olympics, Lebedeva initially won two silvers, in both the long and triple jump. However, on re-testing of samples in 2016, and during the Russian Doping Scandal of that year, Lebedeva’s samples from 2008 tested positive for dehydrochlormethyltestosterone (Turinabol), and she was disqualified from both events.
