Overview by IAAF  1996_olympic_stadium.jpg
Nikolayeva had won silver in Barcelona as well as two world championship medals, but had never taken gold at the top level. She and Irina Stankina, her compatriot who had won the ’95 world title, led through halfway. Stankina was disqualified 800m later, and Nikolayeva extended the lead over the Italians to 27 seconds at 8Km. Giordano dropped back as the Chinese attacked in the last two kilometres, but Perrone was a safe second, finishing 23 seconds behind Nikolayeva. Gao Hongmiao was the first Chinese to finish, just ahead of Wang, but was disqualified for “lifting.”
Summary by Sports-reference.com
The 1995 World Champion was Russian Irina Stankina. She her teammate, Yelena Nikolayeva, took the early lead but Stankina was disqualified at the six kilometer mark. Nikolayeva had no major titles, having finished 2nd at the 1995 World Cup, 3rd at the 1995 World Championships, and 2nd at the 1992 Olympics, but she had set three track world records and one road world best at the distance, the last coming earlier in 1996. With Stankina out, Nikolayeva was unchallenged in winning her first major gold medal.
