Usain Bolt stripped of 2008 Olympic relay gold medal after Nesta Carter banned for using drugs
The International Olympic Committee on Thursday said it had stripped Jamaica athletes of their gold medal earned in the 4x100m relay at the 2008 Beijing Games after Nesta Carter was caught doping.
The decision which follows the retesting of hundreds of samples from the Beijing event, means teammate Usain Bolt loses one of the three gold medals he won at that Olympics. Carter was found to have tested positive for banned substance Methylhexanamine.
Carter, the sixth fastest 100m runner of all time, ran the opening leg of the Olympic final eight years ago as Jamaica stormed to victory in a world-record 37.10sec
