Christian Cole Comes Under Investigation
American sprinter Christian Coleman has recently had a new investigation opened against him after he allegedly missed three separate drug tests. If the athlete is found guilty, he’ll receive a one-year instant ban and miss next year’s World Championships in Qatar and the Tokyo Olympic Games. It’s been reported that the runner has three possible failures under the ‘whereabouts’ system put in place to track drug testing.
Coleman has since confirmed that he will be contesting at least once of the cases that have been placed against him. Neither the IAAF, the World Anti-Doping Agency, the US Anti-Doping Agency, nor the Athletics Integrity Unit, the governing body of athletics, remarked on the situation after it had been first published publicly. Coleman won last month’s U.S. National Championships in 9.99 seconds, setting the best time of the year so far-9.81secs at the June Diamond League conference in Stanford, California.
The 23-year-old won the silver medal behind fellow American Justin Gatlin at the 2017 London World Championships and has a private record of 9.79secs, making him the seventh quickest athlete in history. He also set a fresh world record for the 60 m when he won gold at last year’s Birmingham World Indoor Championships and was discussed in the post-Usain Bolt age as a new superstar sprinter. Under the scheme of’ whereabouts,’ participants must keep authorities informed of where they are going to be for one hour each day, as well as details of housing and coaching overnight.
