  Doping Violation Shock For Bolt Teammate

Jamaican athlete Nesta Carter, who helped the 4×100 team to Olympic and World Championship titles, has tested positive for a banned stimulant in a retest of 454 samples from the Beijing Games.

The athlete’s ‘B’ sample is also said to have detected Methylhexanamine, the banned substance. The substance has been on the World Anti-Doping Agency prohibited list since 2004 although it was reclassified on the 2011 list as a “specified substance”. It was reclassified on the 2011 list as a “specified substance”, meaning one that is more susceptible to a “credible, non-doping explanation. Methylhexanamine, which has been used more recently as an ingredient in dietary supplements, used to be sold as a nasal decongestant in the United States until 1983. The sanction for its use has been a suspension of six months to a year and the loss of results from the period concerned.

Carter, the first-leg specialist in Jamaica’s dominant squad, assisted in winning gold medals at the 2008 and 2012 Olympics and the 2011, 2013, and 2015 world championships. Carter ran the opening leg of the relay event in which the team – also featuring Michael Frater, Usain Bolt, and Asafa Powell – clocked a then world-record time of 37.10 to take the 2008 title. Carter, the sixth fastest man of all time over 100m, has declined to make any comments till now.

Carter’s teammate Usain Bolt meanwhile said he would have no problem giving back one of his six Olympic gold medals if Carter is confirmed to have failed a drugs test. Bolt added it is heartbreaking to learn about the positive test because we have worked hard over the years to accumulate gold medals and work hard to be a champion. Bolt further said it will not be a problem for him if he needs to give back his gold medal.

The entire Jamaican relay team could be stripped of medals if one member is disqualified. If stripped of the gold medal, the dream of Bolt to match Carl Lewis’s nine Olympic gold medals as three in Rio would then still leave him one short.

Regarded as the fastest person ever timed, Usain Bolt recently recorded the second fastest time of the year in winning a 100m race in Jamaica. He ran 9.88 seconds at the Racers Grand Prix in Kingston. Bolt caught fellow Jamaicans Yohan Blake and Asafa Powell by 60m after a poor start before easing over the line. The 100m world record holder added he was “in good nick” ahead of Jamaica’s Olympic trials which start on 30 June.

Behind 9.58-second world record holder Bolt, every other man to run under 9.79 seconds has served a ban for drugs at some point in their career with Tyson Gay (9.69 seconds), Yohan Blake (9.69 seconds), Asafa Powell (9.72 seconds), and Justin Gatlin (9.74 seconds) all falling prey to anti-doping regulations. Carter, 30, is the sixth fastest 100m sprinter of all time with a personal best 9.78 seconds set in 2010. The Jamaican athlete has broken the 10-second barrier over 100m for every one of the past eight seasons and had his eyes set to represent Jamaica at this summer’s Rio Games.

  Jamaican Sprinter Fails 2008 Doping Retest

Jamaican Olympic sprint relay gold medalist Nesta Carter has returned an anti-doping violation for Methylhexanamine, a banned stimulant.

The positive test was announced after the re-testing of 454 samples from the 2008 Beijing Games. According to media reports, traces of Methylhexanamine were discovered in the ‘A’ sample of Carter. The sample was part of a batch of 454 from the 2008 Games that was ordered to be retested by the International Olympic Committee (IOC). The Jamaican, who won gold in the 4×100 meters relay with Jamaican team mates Usain Bolt, Asafa Powell, and Michael Frater in Beijing, could face sanctions only if his “B” sample also tests positive for the substance.  Carter’s ‘B’ sample test is due to be reanalyzed in Lausanne, Switzerland, later this month.

Carter had won individual 100m bronze at the 2013 World Championships and has been an important member of the all-conquering Jamaican 4x100m team led by Bolt with a 100m personal best of 9.78sec set in 2010.

Bolt, the fastest man on the earth, could now be stripped of one of his six Olympic titles after Carter was reported as among those to fail a drugs test in the reanalysis of urine and blood samples from the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. Carter, the sixth fastest 100m runner of all time, ran the opening leg eight years ago at the Olympic final when Jamaica stormed to victory in a world-record 37.10sec, which helped Bolt to a clean sweep of sprint titles as the Jamaican star burst onto the global stage at his first Games.

Mike Fennell, president of the Jamaica Olympic Association, refused to deny or confirm the news. Carter and his agent declined to make comments. Methylhexanamine has been on the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Code prohibited list since 2004 and the substance was reclassified on the 2011 list as a “specified substance” that covers specified substances as those that are more susceptible to a “credible, non-doping explanation”. Methylhexanamine is commonly used as an ingredient in dietary supplements and was sold as a nasal decongestant in the United States until 1983.

The Jamaican Olympic Association has confirmed it has received a notice that an athlete from its 2008 team tested positive for performance enhancing drugs. The JOA would not release the name of the athlete, citing confidentiality rules.

IOC recently decided that any doping cases arising from the re-tests will be dealt with directly by them. Usually, such cases are handled by the relevant national federations and national anti-doping agencies. Last week, IOC president Thomas Bach said we want to keep dopers away from the Olympic games in Rio de Janeiro and this is why we are acting swiftly now. Bach, while announcing the re-testing of 265 samples from the London Olympics, said he had already appointed a disciplinary commission, which has the full power to take all decisions on behalf of the IOC.

IOC spokesman Mark Adams said what we want to do, and are trying to do, is target athletes who have positive results and stop them from competing in Rio.

The second Kabaddi World Cup has been robbed of its true spirit due to rampant doping among players.

On Tuesday, five players, two from Canada and one each from UK, Australia and Italy, were found dope positive, taking the overall tally to 12 out of 36 samples tested till now.

“To be very true, I don’t know whether we will be participating next year or not,” said an apprehensive Australian coach.
