  • Fani Chalkia (Greek: Φανή Χαλκιά, [faˈni xalˈca], born February 2, 1979 in Larissa), also transliterated as Halkia or Khalkia, is a retired Greek hurdler. An athlete of Olympiacos, Chalkia won the gold medal in the women's 400m hurdles at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens. During the semifinals Halkia set an Olympic record of 52.77 seconds. On August 16, 2008, during the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing it was announced that she tested positive for the banned substance methyltrienolone. Chalkia denied she has taken any banned substance, and asked for her 'B' sample to be tested, which also tested positive the next day. On December 12, 2008, the IAAF announced that she would be banned from the sport for two years. On February 19, 2016, Fani Halkia was unanimously acquitted of all charges for the use of banned substances. The Court of Appeal ruled that the former champion had fallen victim to a circuit of adulterated drugs. Along with her, her trainer Giorgos Panagiotopoulos was also acquitted, who was facing charges of supplying banned substances. (en)
