Usain Bolt Stripped of One Olympic Gold Medal Over Teammates Doping Scandal

Usain Bolt was stripped of one of his Olympic gold medals because his teammate Nesta Carter was caught in a doping scandal.

The 30-year-old world famous sprinter ran in the 4x100m relay in Beijing’s 2008 Olympics with Nesta, Asafa Powell, and Michael Frater. Nesta‘s sample was retested, and methylhexaneamine was found, CNN reports.

All four men will be stripped of the medal.

Usain is famous for achieving the “triple triple,” which is winning all three sprinting events at three Olympics.

Usain had nine gold medals before this incident.
