Kelly Sotherton hopes the career of heptathlon silver medallist Lyudmila Blonska is over after the Ukrainian failed a drugs test for the second time.
The International Olympic Committee confirmed that Blonska has been "removed from the Olympic Games" and that she will not compete in the long jump final.
The 30-year-old was given a two-year ban in 2003 after testing positive for steroids and it is understood Blonska has now tested positive for an anabolic steroid.
Anti-doping authorities will test the Ukrainian's 'B' sample tomorrow and if the positive test is confirmed by the IOC is confirmed she could be given a lifetime ban.
Blonska came second in the heptathlon with a season's best score of 6,700 points, three places ahead of Sotherton, who said: "I'm totally not surprised by the news.
"I've been saying all along that she got caught doping when she was scoring 6300 points, how can she not be doping and scoring 6800?
"I have not seen any of her results since early June and then she comes out here and is producing good performances, which was suspicious.
"If the B sample comes back positive then that's a life ban, which will bring an end to the saga - hopefully she will be finished."
IAAF president Lamine Diack confirmed he had been informed of the failed test and that Blonska will have her B sample tested on Thursday.
He said: "On my way here I was phoned to be informed that Blonska had tested positive and that we have to go (on Thursday, August 21) to open the B sample.
"The IOC has to refer to the international federation president when there has been a positive test. I will have to be present at the B sample opening."
An official statement confirmed that "due to the IOC decision to remove the Ukrainian athlete Lyudmila Blonska from the Olympic Games" her place in the final will be taken by Nigeria's Blessing Okagbura.
Former Olympic champion Denise Lewis claims the Beijing heptathlon has been "spoilt" by Blonska's positive test.
Lewis, who won gold at the Sydney Games in 2000 expressed her "complete and utter joy" at Blonska's downfall. She said: "She's been caught once before. I'm all for giving people one more chance but it's obvious that if you're going to cheat you probably will always be a cheat, and I'm glad she'll be gone from the sport for good.
"It leaves a bitter taste in my mouth considering the girls give everything in the heptathlon.
"She shouldn't have been taking part in the heptathlon and good riddance. She won silver in Osaka last year, so hopefully her name will be got out of the (record) books.
"You would think she'd learn her lesson but obviously the temptation, whether it's the money, it attracts these people to cheating.
"It's utterly disgusting and it's spoilt the heptathlon for me."
The case is expected to come before the IOC's disciplinary commission and executive board, which meet tomorrow.
Lewis told BBC Radio Five Live: "Kelly (Sotherton) will have been bitterly disappointed, even though I know it doesn't affect her - she will feel justified in her public comments about Blonska in the last couple of years."
The IOC have refused to confirm the positive finding, saying in a statement: "The IOC does not comment, or provide information, on any doping cases until a decision is made by either the disciplinary commission or executive board."
Sotherton said earlier this week: "I'm not happy she competed again. We have rules in our country that we abide by. We don't bring anybody who cheated previously, so why should any other country?
"I'd have been really upset if she'd won gold. The penalty you should pay if you take drugs is not to compete at the Olympics."
Under usual IOC procedure, Blonska will be stripped of her silver medal and her accreditation for the Games withdrawn.
It would mean the USA's Hyleas Fountain moving up to silver, Russia's Tatiana Chernova moving up to bronze, and Sotherton's official finishing position being fourth.
