Sad! Usain Bolt Stripped Of Olympics Medal – See Why

🔥Posted by: On: June 13, 2017. In: Sports



Jamaican sportsman regarded as one of the best athletes in history,Usain Bolt has been stripped of one of his record 24 medals.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) announced this on Wednesday, saying Jamaican Nesta Carter had been certified guilty of doping.

Carter was one of the Jamaican athletes who won gold in the 4x100m relay at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.

He did not compete in Rio 2016, and has been fighting to clear his name. He tested positive for the banned substance Methlhexanamine.

All four members of the Jamaican relay team which participated in the Beijing game – which also included Michael Frater and Asafa Powell – have now been stripped of their medals.

Original 4x100m silver medallists Trinidad & Tobago are now likely to be upgraded to gold, with Japan boosted to silver and Brazil bronze.

Bolt, an 11-time world champion has never tested positive to any banned substance throughout his career.

Last summer, he described the Carter situation as heartbreaking, but said he would have no problem giving back a medal if the positive test was confirmed.
