Ostapchuk receives one-year ban 
Shot putter Nadzeya Ostapchuk has been 
banned from competition for a year 
after failing a drugs test and being 
stripped of her Olympic gold medal. 

The Belarusian, 31, won with a throw of 
21.36m, but officials found metenolone 
in a urine sample she provided. 

The ban is lenient as Ostapchuk was 
unaware her coach, Alexander Yefimov, 
had drugged her food. Yefimov has 
received a four-year ban. 

New Zealand's Valerie Adams was 
elevated from second to first.
