A New Zealand shot putter Valerie Adams received a gold medal after the London games were over this week, after the original winner was stripped of her title for doping. Nadzeya Ostapchuk of Belarus tested positive for an anabolic steroid on the IOC’s banned substance list. Adams’ name will go down in the record books as a double Olympic shot put champion, not in the way she wanted.

Valerie Adams, Olympic shot put champion said, "I think the only disappointing thing was not being able to enjoy the moment, and have the national anthem be played in the stadium with everybody there singing it along with me."
