World champion sprinter Justin Gatlin involved in another doping scandal

Nehemiah also said that Gatlin was not present for any discussions of banned substances by Wagner or Mitchell, who was sacked Monday.

A recent report from The Telegraph says that associates of Gatlin were approached by undercover reporters about obtaining illegal performance-enhancing drugs. We are presently coordinating with the Athletics Integrity Unit in order to investigate these claims fully.

Justin Gatlin is reportedly being investigating by anti-doping authorities. Wagner also allegedly said that Gatlin had been using performance-enhancing drugs.

Explaining the nature of "designer" synthetic drugs, Dennis Mitchell, a former 4x100m world record-holder who in 1998 was banned for having high testosterone levels, told The Telegraph's undercover reporters: "There's a lot of different things going on out there".

When confronted about those statements, Gatlin's agent said he was just playing along because he wanted to convince the reporters to buy the drugs.


Doping investigations are not new territory for Gatlin.

Gatlin shocked Usain Bolt to win the 100m title at the world championships. In both instances, Gatlin appealed and had his bans reduced. In 2001, Gatlin was banned from global competition for two years after testing positive for amphetamines.

The US Anti-Doping Agency told The Telegraph: 'Investigations stemming from tips and whistleblowers play a critical role in anti-doping efforts.

Since returning to the track Gatlin has claimed to be clean and has offered to release data from tests in the past five years.

"These allegations are extremely serious and I know the independent Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) will investigate in accordance with its mandate", IAAF president Seb Coe said in a statement.
