Olympic Legend Usain Bolt is furious over the prospect of potentially losing one of his Olympic gold medals following the revelation that teammate Nesta Carter, who was part of Jamaica's successful record-breaking 4x100M relay team, tested positive for the banned stimulant methylhexaneamine after a reanalysis of samples from Beijing 2008. In an interview with the Jamaican Newspaper The Gleaner, Bolt did not mince words as he let his teammate know how he felt.
"All I have to say is that Nesta did a real damn bloodclat thing. How can he do that to me and tarnish my reputation like that man? Doesn't he know how important that is to me? We Jamaicans pride ourselves on being the best at what we do by virtue of hard work, good genes and eating the best yams in the world which are only grown in Jamaica."
Bolt then took a swipe at the Americans, Russians and quite surprisingly Trinidadians:
"It is a well-known fact that doping in sports is almost an exclusively American and Russian thing. But what is most upsetting is that now the Trinidad & Tobago team will have a gold medal which they didn't really deserve. Did you see how pathetically they performed in Rio? They were disqualified in the final. Aw well, but at least none of the members of the Trinidad & Tobago team can say that they have ever beaten me in an individual race. In fact, if I decide to run in Tokyo in three years' time they still won't be able to beat me. The same thing applies to the Americans and the Russians whether they dope or not."
