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.
