New ranking system - what does this mean for athletics?
On the track, East German athlete Marita Koch's 33-year-old 400m mark of 47.60 - also open to suspicion - is streets ahead of the 49.26 s run by American Allyson Felix in winning her world title in 2013. Most noticeably, Ethiopia's Almaz Ayana dropped jaws around the Olympic Stadium in Rio when she shattered the 10,000m world record set by China's Wang Junxia in 1993 by a mammoth 14 seconds.
