FILE - In this Monday, Aug. 6, 2012 file photo, Belarus' Nadzeya Ostapchuk takes a throw in the women's shot put final during the athletics in the Olympic Stadium at the 2012 Summer Olympics, London. Ostapchuk became the first athlete to be stripped of a medal at the London Olympics after her gold was withdrawn for doping. Valerie Adams of New Zealand will now take gold and Evgeniia Kolodko of Russia will get silver. Fourth-place finisher Gong Lijiao of China moves up to bronze. The International Olympic Committee said Monday Aug. 13, 2012 that Ostapchuk tested positive for the steroid metenolone. She won the shot put exactly a week earlier. The IOC says she was tested the day before her competition and again following the event. Both samples were positive. (AP Photo/Matt Dunham)
