Usain Bolt to lose Olympic gold after teammate caught doping
Usain Bolt made history as the first sprinter to sweep three gold medals at three Olympic Games. Now he’s losing a piece of his historic hardware.
Bolt will forfeit an Olympic gold won at the 2008 Beijing Games because his Jamaican teammate was caught doping.
Nesta Carter was disqualified from the 4x100 relay that won gold in Beijing after a reanalysis of his sample found the banned substance methylhexaneamine, the IOC announced Wednesday.
