Usain Bolt won’t get 9th Olympic gold medal back

Usain Bolt won’t get back his ninth Olympic medal after his teammate’s appeal of a positive doping test was dismissed Thursday, according to The Associated Press.

Jamaican sprinter Nesta Carter’s sample from the 2008 Beijing Olympics tested positive for the stimulant methylhexaneamine during a new analysis in 2016.

Consequently, Carter and his teammates lost the gold they won for the 4×100-meter relay in Beijing. Carter ran the opening leg of the race while Bolt took the third leg and helped Jamaica to a world-record time of 37.10 seconds.

While Carter appealed the decision, a Court of Arbitration for Sport judging panel dismissed his appeal on Thursday.

Before the disqualification, Bolt could claim a perfect Olympic career of three gold medals in the 100, 200 and 4×100 at three straight games in 2008, 2012 and 2016.

With the disqualification of the Jamaica team, which also included Michael Frater and Asafa Powell, the 4×100 gold for 2008 goes to Trinidad and Tobago. The IOC is also expected to upgrade Japan to silver and Brazil to bronze in the event.
