Kelly Sotherton hopes it is all over for BlonskaKelly Sotherton hopes the career of heptathlon silver medalist Lyudmila Blonska is over after the athlete from Ukraine failed a drugs test for the second time.

It was confirmed by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) that Blonska has been “removed from the Olympic Games” and that she will not compete in the long jump final.

Former Olympic champion Denise Lewis, who won gold at the Sydney Games in 2000, expressed her “complete and utter joy” at Blonska’s downfall.
