Kiwi shot put star Valerie Adams will be bestowed with the 2010 World Indoor Championships gold medal after its previous recipient was stripped of the title for doping.

Former holder, Belarusian Nadzeya Ostapchuk, has tested positive for drugs since the Doha meet, handing the medal to Dame Valerie.

She has now won the event on four successive occasions, from 2008 to 2014.

Dame Valerie will receive the medal after the women's shot put stakes at today's New Zealand track and field championships in Hamilton.
