Adams says she didn't have doubts about Ostapchuk

New Zealand's champion shot-putter Valerie Adams says she never had any concerns about the legality of her great rival Nadzeya Ostapchuk who has been stripped of her London Olympic title.

The Belarussian has been told by the IOC to return her Olympic gold medal after failing a drugs test.

Two urine samples taken before and after her win last Tuesday tested positive for metenolone, an anabolic steroid.

Adams says she's not wasting her time thinking about her Ostapchuk.

She says as far as she is concerned Ostapchuk is history.

There's little time for the 27-year-old Adams to celebrate though, she competes in Stockholm later this week.
