The olympic gold medalist in shot put, Belarussian Nadzeya Ostapchuk, has lost her gold medal. She failed doping tests and has thus been disqualified. The gold has gone to New Zealander Valerie Adams instead.

This is good. Cheating should be punished, in human sports as well as in dog sports. I would not like to lose a dog show to a dog who cheated, neither should a human have to lose to another human who has cheated.
