PRIVALOVA Olga (1968) Russia / Track and field
For a long time considered as one of the best European sprinters over 100 and 200 m, having turned thirty the Russian chose to change to the 400 m hurdles, believing that she could no longer tolerate the explosive reactions necessary for fast races. She was right to do so as well, for in Sydney she beat all the favourites in the 400 m hurdles. This is a real feat, given that the race in Sydney was only her eighth over the distance.This was not her only successful conversion, since she had started her sporting career as a speed skater.
