New Olympic medal gives career 'more meaning' – Sotherton

Kelly Sotherton

Kelly Sotherton feels her career has “more meaning” after she was upgraded to a three-time Olympic medallist following retrospective drug tests.

Sotherton, who won heptathlon bronze in 2004, has been given third for the same event in Beijing 2008 after Tatyana Chernova tested positive for a steroid.

In November, the Briton was moved up to bronze in the 2008 4x400m relay after Belarus and Russia’s disqualifications.
