Usain Bolt Loses Gold Medal Over Teammate’s Failed Doping Test
Famed Jamaican Olympian Usain Bolt has lost a gold medal—one of his nine titles–after a teammate failed a doping test. Bolt, known as the world's greatest track-and-field star, was stripped of the honor after Nesta Carter tested positive for a banned substance during a reanalysis of urine and blood samples from the Beijing Olympic Games. Carter is the sixth fastest 100m runner of all time. He did not compete in Rio.
