Amantle MONTSHO - Botswana - Silver medal at 2013 World Championships in 400m.

Amantle Montsho and Christine Ohuruogu cross the finish line together at the end

of the women's 400m metres final in Moscow. The defending champion Amantle was given

second place behind the 2012 Olympic Champion Ohuruogu in the closest of finishes at

the World Championships.  Weeks earlier Amantle set a new National record for

Botswana of 49.33. However, in 2014 at The Commonwealth Games  Montsho failed a routine

drugs test from her 'A' sample.  Subsequently this finding was confirmed by the results

of her 'B' sample which also tested positive for the stimulant methylhexaneamine.

She trains at the High Performance Training Centre in Dakar, Senegal.
