There was a poll on Campbell live as to where she should be presented with her medal

I didn't pick up all the locations but there  was Twickenham, Eden Park and Christmas in the park and one other.

Doesn't seem to occur to them that maybe she might like it at an athletic meeting at Mt Smart Stadium where she would have had so much support in the early days.


Rugby should butt out.

She still took them whether she knew about it or not, you just need to look at her to know that, so she's s**t out of luck

But let's look past the issue of whether someone framed her or not - the chances of that being proven such that the IOC are willing to overturn the decision again are virtually zero.

Whatever is argued in front of the IOC the likelihood of Ostapchuk's appeal being upheld is so low that she will never see her gold medal reinstated.

Athletes operate under a strict liability doctrine whereby even if prohibited drugs are taken innocently the athletes are still liable.

A great example of this is Scottish skier Alain Baxter, who was stripped of his
2002 Winter Olympics bronze medal after testing positive for a non-active form of methamphetamine.

It turned out Baxter had bought a Vicks nasal decongestant in the United States, unaware the US version contained a prohibited substance, unlike the one he used all the time in the UK.

Despite his inadvertant use and the non-performance enhancing nature of the drug, Baxter was still banned and the decision to strip him of his medal was eventually upheld by the Court of Arbitration in Sport.

Heard that tonight on the news, talk about grabbing at straws. Adams may be built like a brick dunny but she definitely has feminine qualities - that guy has none so probably been om the man pills for a while.

Switzerland was the other option, cause that's where she trains & lives.

There was a suggestion on the telly last night that she be presented with the medal during an all blacks game.

NO FCKN WAY

Whenever & where ever she gets the medal, it should be about her...giving her the medal around an all blacks game would suggest that she plays second fiddle to rugby...be a token gesture...

I don't think so Tim

Have just read that she wants it at an athletic meeting in Switzerland where she lives.


Rugby get far more than their fair share of coverage so should butt out on this one.

Track and Field has nothing to do with rugby.

I don't think it was anyone official that suggested the rugby - just some random who had an idea.
