Usain Bolt has lost one of his nine Olympic gold medals in a doping case involving teammate Nesta Carter.
Usain Bolt is no longer a nine-time Olympic gold medalist after Nesta Carter tested positive for a banned substance. The IOC said Wednesday that Carter tested positive for methylhexaneamine, a banned stimulant, in re-analysis of samples from the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
Carter and Bolt were teammates on the winning 4×100-meter relay team, which also included Michael Frater and Asafa Powell.
“The Court of Arbitration for Sport (“CAS”) has confirmed that the presence or use of substances falling within the scope of generic definitions of the prohibited list, can be used as a basis of establishing anti-doping rules violations,” the verdict said.
