Valerie: Yeah , there were very tough competitors, like the women from Belarus.  They did drug tests and urine tests and it was confirmed the the lady from Belarus was taking steroids,     She was stripped from her gold medal and had to hand it over to me.

Howard:  What's up with these steroids? All they do is get you into trouble and make you ashamed.

Valerie: Yeah thats right it gets you embarrassed and ashamed.

Howard: Your fans were furious about the look of your rival that took steroids.

Valerie: Yeah everyone was saying  she looked like a man?

Howard: What's it like  being there in the middle of the spotlight in front of all of your fans.

Valerie: Well , uh I get pretty nervous to the roaring crowds and shouting competitors.But after awhile I start to adjust to it and relax myself.

Howard:  Thats good to know.

Valerie: Thanks Howard.

Howard: So when was the first time you entered the olympics.

Valerie: In 2004 in Athens  Greece. I finished in eighth place and I was happy with myself.
