Jo Pavey to receive bronze from 2007 World Championships

Middle distance runner and Runner's World contributing editor Jo Pavey is set to retrospectively receive bronze from the 2007 World Championships 10,000m event. The International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) has announced that original silver medallist, Turkey's Elvan Abeylegesse, has been found guilty of an in-competition doping offence following a retest of blood samples.

In the initial event, Pavey, 43, took fourth place behind the USA's Kara Goucher, who is now set to take silver. 

Abeylegesse was one of 28 athletes being investigated by the IAAF following retests which revealed suspicious blood test results.
