I know that the European championships are not as competitive as a Worlds or Olympics or even the Golden league, but the Germans seem to have made quite the turnaround since Oregon, which was barely a month ago.
Yeah, but the overall improvement was imo not that big and they were probably always supposed to peak for their home EC and not for the WC.

Mujinga Kambundji becoming word class in her late 20s/at the age of 30 on the other hand is one of those things that is actually a bit of a red flag for me.
 
Considering she also had the 4th, 5th, 6th and 8th fastest times of all time it doesn't seem too outlandish (it was very f'ing fast though, even for a dope monster such as her).
IMO it wasn't just about the program aids taken then that drove the times. Their federation had so little regard for the athlete's health the dosages of "non-detectable" drugs proved fatal to the lifespan of almost every E German and Russian athletes of the era. The fact that she's still alive is testimony to her unique abilities and probably was stronger than her competition, too.
 
Australian 800m runner Peter Bol, who finished 4th at the Tokyo Olympics, has tested positive to EPO in his A-sample.
He is denying he has done anything wrong, like they all do, and is waiting for his B-sample result.

I just don’t understand how people can see this stuff and think the people finishing ahead of them are clean.

Yes like they all do. But of course the three who finished ahead of Bol in Tokyo are clean. Sad all round.

Maybe he will try the it-was-in-my-meat excuse, except that the only meaty creatures with synthetic EPO in their system would be other pro cyclists or seriously ill patients (kidney failure, bone marrow disease) so let’s hope he doesn’t go there!

He might... but then he'd get into a whole different sort of legal issues:
"Okay, so you didn't deliberately ingest EPO, but... you're just a frikkin' canibal instead!"
