[Lao Lishi] and [Li Ting] had won the 2002 World Cup and the 2003 World Championships and were favored in Athens. A Russian duo had been second to them at the 2002 World Cup and third at the 2003 World Chamionships, but an entirely new pair was entered in Athens. It mattered little as Lao and Li won the gold easily, with Russiaâs [Nataliya Goncharova] and [Yuliya Koltunova] placing second.
