I really hope that the copper pieces that made the cauldron all get auctioned off for charity - they would make a really strange looking water feature, or planter in someone's garden, or something similar indoors, for a conversation piece.I believe there was 1 copper piece for every country that competed and that each country will receive one as a gift. That's what they said on the News here anyway.
Oh, ok. That would be nice to reflect that it's giving something to everyone. Now to see if that works the world over.
Some shot put news - Belarussian, Nadzeya Ostapchuk has been stripped of her (yes, apparently she is a woman, who knew?) gold medal for testing positive for banned substance, metenolone, which is apparently a banned anabolic agent. All I know about that is it's a steroid, so she's out. New Zealander, Valerie Adams is promoted to the Gold medal in her stead.
It could have been worse - she could have tested positive for Methadone. Can you imagine that - a heroin junkie shot putter?
