Citius Mag Podcast: Kara Goucher on her new silver medal, coming back from injury, fall marathon plans
Kara Goucher joins the CITIUS MAG Podcast just days before she will receive her silver medal for finishing second at the 2007 IAAF World Championships in Osaka. Goucher initially finished third behind Tirunesh Dibaba and Elvan Abeylegesse but re-testing of samples showed that Abeylegesse tested positive for performance-enhancing drug. Goucher will be upgraded to silver and Jo Pavey of Great Britain will get bronze.
Goucher discusses the process of how she found out about the upcoming medal ceremony in London, whether she’s seen any improvements within track and field’s anti-doping policies. She also discusses her recent injuries after finishing fourth at the 2016 U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials in Los Angeles. Tokyo 2020 is still three years away but hear her thoughts about those games as well.
