Kelly Sotherton feels third Olympic medal gives career ‘more meaning’


Wednesday, 26 April 2017 :  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.

“Until now I felt my career could have been better,” she told .

“I left Beijing in tears because I thought I had failed. But I am a lot happier now because I feel my career has more meaning to it and I am worthy.

“I would swap all three medals for a gold, obviously, but to win three Olympic medals, regardless of what colour they are, is an achievement and I feel very happy about that.”
