Martii VAINIO - Finland - 1978 European 10,000m Champion

 The photo above was taken during the 1982 European Championship 5,000m final.


In 1984 Vainio was tested positive for anabolic steroids and as a consequence his results

at the 1984 Olympic Games were later annulled. He finished 2nd. in the 10,000m but was

withdrawn from the 5,000m final after his doping sample following the 10,000 metres final tested

positive for Metenolone.
