The sprint sensation who has beat out all competition in the 100m, 200m, and 4 x 100m relay in the past three Games is surrendering the medal he won in the sprint relay in Beijing in 2008 thanks to a failed teammate doping test. Nesta Carter, 31, was one of the athletes whose samples from the Beijing Olympics were reanalyzed. Bolt, Carter, including teammates Michael Frater and Asafa Powell, were stripped of their 2008 Beijing Olympic Games gold medals. Bolt and Carter helped Jamaica win the gold medal in the4X100-meter relay at the Bejing Olympics in 2008, but Carter's positive test means they must return their medals to the IOC.
Methylhexanamine has been on the World Anti-Doping Agency code prohibited list since 2004, although it was reclassified on the 2011 list as a "specified substance".
"At this point in time we are not in receipt of any official correspondence from the International Olympics Committee (IOC) in respect of the Trinidad and Tobago relay team". The corresponding medals, medallist pins and diplomas are withdrawn and shall be returned.
Carter ran the first leg for Jamaica's 4X100-meter relay team, which set a new world record in Bejing.
Jamaica do not, however, appear to be in any danger of losing the gold medal they won in that event.
