Justin Gatlin embroiled in new doping scandal

19 Décembre 2017

Justin Gatlin, the world 100 metres champion, is at the centre of a new doping scandal after members of his team offered to illicitly supply performance-enhancing drugs. "We are presently coordinating with the Athletics Integrity Unit in order to investigate these claims fully".

His entourage are said to have offered to smuggle prescription testosterone and a human-growth hormone acquired under a false name to the US.

American track and field star Justin Gatlin and his coach, Dennis Mitchell, are under investigation for use of performance-enhancing drugs, according to Claire Newell, Hayley Dixon, Daniel Foggo, Callum Adams and Luke Heighton of the Telegraph.

Mitchell and the agent, Robert Wagner, were also secretly recorded claiming doping in sport was still widespread as well as describing ways where doping tests could be avoided.

Gatlin has denied the claims and offered up clean drugs test from the last five-year of evidence he is now a clean athlete.

Renaldo Nehemiah, Gatlin's agent, told the publication that Wagner had only worked for Gatlin on two or three occasions. He also explained Gatlin had not been present when banned substances were discussed with the agent or coach.

Gatlin - who was banned for doping in 2001 and again in 2006 - was booed by spectators in August this year after his controversial win over favourite Usain Bolt in the World Athletics Championship.
