This Walter Sobchak look alike tested positive for the banned substance metenolone, an anabolic steroid. Well, she clearly didn’t pass the ole eyeball test. Her 22″ biceps, barrel chest and power jaw weren’t just a byproduct of hard work in the gym, apparently. Nadzeya Ostapchuk was on the juice, and now she’s paying for it. The shot putting beast has been stripped of her gold medal.
Ostapchuk, 31, put together her best ever series at a major championships to defeat world champion Valerie Adams of New Zealand. With four throws over 21 metres, Ostapchuk’s 21.36m was the best winning mark at the Olympics since 1988.
All for naught. This isn’t ‘Nam, Nadzeya. There are fucking rules. The IOC tested her before and after her event. She tested positive both times.
She is also expected to test positive for having a penis. Report on the way.
