Congratulations to Val Adams
Delighted with gold medal for Val Adams
High Performance Sport New Zealand chief executive Alex Baumann is delighted Val Adams has won the gold medal in shot put.
He also says the awarding of the gold medal to Adams shows anti-doping processes work.
Nadezhda Ostapchuk has been stripped of the gold medal after testing positive for metenolone, paving the way for Adams to take gold in the women’s shot put in London 2012.
New Zealand’s medal tally stands at 13, with Kiwi athletes winning six gold medals, two silver and five bronze.
