Belarus shot putter Nadezhda Ostapchuk stripped of London 2012 gold medal after failing drugs test


New Zealand shot-putter Valerie Adams is set to be crowned Olympic champion for the second successive Games after the woman who beat her to the gold medal last week, Belarus athlete Nadzeya Ostapchuk, was stripped of her title for failing a drug test.

Nadzeya Ostapchuk -  stripped of gold medal

Disgraced: Belarus’s Nadzeya Ostapchuk has been excluded from the Games and had her gold medal withdrawn after failing drugs test.

Just a day after the Olympic flame was extinguished, the International Olympic Committee announced that Ostapchuk had tested positive for metenolone, a banned anabolic steroid.

In a statement, the IOC said the athlete had been disqualifed with immediate effect and that the process had begun to reallocate the medals.

It means Adams, the 2008 Olympic champion and three-time winner of the world title, will retain her crown, while Russia’s Evgeniia Kolodko will be promoted to the silver medal and China’s Lijiao Gong will receive the bronze.

Ostapchuck, a bronze medallist in Beijing, took the title last Monday with a winning throw of 21.36 metres, with Adams finishing second with 20.70m.

She is the 12th athlete to be excluded from the London Olympics but the first to be stripped of a medal.

It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.
