The close of the London Olympics was just hours ago, and we have already had our first Olympic medal stripped.Shot putter Nadzeya Ostapchuk from Belarus has been stripped of her gold medal, in the first case of doping from the London Olympics. Ostapchuk tested positive for steroids both before and after winning the shot put last week for her first Olympic gold.

The gold medal has been awarded to Valerie Adams of New Zealand, who claims an Olympic victory for the second time in a row.
