Adam Nelson to get 2004 gold in shot put

American shot putter Adam Nelson will get the gold medal from the 2004 Athens Olympics that was stripped from a Ukrainian athlete for doping.

The IOC says it has reallocated the medals from three Athens events in which athletes were retroactively disqualified after their doping samples were retested and came back positive.

Nelson finished second in Athens behind Yuriy Bilonog, who was stripped of the gold medal in December.

The IOC held off changing the medals until the results were officially adjusted by the IAAF.

On Thursday, the IOC said Nelson has now been bumped up to the gold medal.
