AUCKLAND - New Zealand shot putter Valerie Adams received her long-awaited Olympic gold medal at an emotional ceremony here Wednesday more than six weeks after being denied the honour in London."Today we got justice," Adams said with tears in her eyes as fireworks were set off in her honour. Adams, the defending Olympic champion, finished second in London to Belarusian Nadezhda Ostapchuk who was later stripped of the title after testing positive for banned steriods.The popular Adams has been competing in Europe since then and flew into Auckland to a heroes welcome only a few hours before the makeshift medal ceremony. She was presented with the medal by Governor General Sir Jerry Mateparae, the British queen's official representative in New Zealand, with the country's other Olympic medal winners in attendance as the national anthem was played."I'm very overwhelmed, very speechless. I'm just glad today's happened. It's around my neck where it should have been in the first place," she said. "What better place to have it than in my own country and I'm just very glad this is around my neck now."
