Usain Bolt, the Jamaican sprinter, and world fastest man, has expressed his displeasure on the groundless doping allegations leveled against him.
Usain Bolt, a Jamaican sprinter, and the world fastest man, is unhappy over being suspected for doping.
The 28-year-old sprinter has never failed a doping test. He commented that it is sad that people level such allegations on his brilliant career.
It’s sad. People are saying I need to win for the sport, but I can’t do it by myself,”
It’s a responsibility of all the athletes to take it upon themselves to save the sport and go forwards without drug cheats.
Usain Bolt’s closest rival Justin Gatlin has been suspeneded twice for using banned substances. Gatlin’s second positive test in 2006 would normally have earned him a lifetime ban but that was cut to eight and then four years on appeal after he agreed to co-operate with the anti-doping authorities.
The IAAF competition is to begin this Saturday and many athletics fans have billed Usian Bolt’s clash with Justin Gatlin has a battle for the soul of the sport. The International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) has already banned over 28 athletes and promised to sanction others caught in doping.
Usain Bolt is the first man to hold both the 100 metres and 200 metres world records since fully automatic time measurements became mandatory in 1977.
