Athletic Ireland have expressed their delight at the news that Rob Heffernan and Olive Loughnane are to be upgraded to Olympic bronze and World Championship gold medals.

That's after the court of arbitration for sport confirmed that all competitive results obtained by the winners of those races are to be quashed due to doping offenses.

The announcement comes following an IAAF appeal.

Loughnane will receive gold from the World championships of 2009 while Heffernan's Olympic Bronze comes from London 2012.
