On August 16, 2008, during the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing it was announced that she tested positive for the banned substance methyltrienolone. Chalkia denied she has taken any banned substance, and asked for her 'B' sample to be tested, which also tested positive the next day. On December 12, 2008, the IAAF announced that she would be banned from the sport for two years.
On February 19, 2016, Fani Halkia was unanimously acquitted of all charges for the use of banned substances. The Court of Appeal ruled that the former champion had fallen victim to a circuit of adulterated drugs. Along with her, her trainer Giorgos Panagiotopoulos was also acquitted, who was facing charges of supplying banned substances.
