Overview by IAAF 2000_olympic_stadium.jpg 
Disqualification was the principal theme of this race. With 4Km to go the lead was held by Liu Hongyu of China in 1:11:07, who was trailed by one second by Elisabeta Perrone (ITA) and Australia’s Jane Saville. Of the eventual medallists Plätzer (1:11:15) was closest, with Vasco another 44 seconds behind. Liu and Perrone were disqualified shortly after, leaving Saville in the lead. The Aussie herself was disqualified with 150m to go, and was distraught enough to ask for a gun “to shoot myself.” However, she later supported the judge’s decision. Wang had made her move on Plätzer with 3Km to go gaining 10 seconds between 16 and 18Km.
Summary by Sports-reference.com
The women’s walk distance was moved up to 20 kilometers in 2000. The favorite was 1999 World Champion Liu Hongyu of China. She led the race thru 15 km., but was then disqualified. The silver medalist from 1996 in the 10 km., Elisabetta Perrone (ITA) then went ahead, but also received a red flag. This left Australia’s Jane Saville in the lead, which she held to the stadium track but there, she too, was disqualified. This left Wang Liping in first place on the track and she won by almost 30 seconds.
