Referring to Bolt stripped of gold medal over teammate’s substance abuseEURWEB.COMUsain Bolt had to give up one of his nine Olympic gold medals on Wednesday after his Jamaican teammate, Nesta Carter, tested positive for a banned substance.
But the gold Bolt won in the 4x100m relay in Beijing 2008 will no longer count after the International Olympic Committee (IOC) disqualified Jamaica’s sprint team on Wednesday.
Bolt, 30, completed an unprecedented “triple triple” at Rio in 2016, becoming the only man to win all three sprint events at three Olympic Games.
This means that all four members of the team — Bolt, Asafa Powell, Michael Frater and Carter, a bronze medalist at the 2013 World Championships – must give up their titles.
Re-analysis of Carter’s samples from Beijing resulted in a positive test for the prohibited substance methylhexaneamine.
Groups aim to tackle substance abuse in Montmorency
referring to ATLANTA — Up North Prevention and several other concerned groups have started the Montmorency County Substance Abuse Coalition to tackle substance abuse.
TalkSooner is an app that provides a means to get information to community members and parents who wish to better understand the different illegal drugs in the community.
On Wednesday Donna Hardies from Up North Prevention told the Montmorency County Board of Commissioners the steps the groups have taken to initiate the coalition.
With the support of local law enforcement, members of the medical community, substance abuse professionals and area community members the group began meeting to discuss how to address the issue and bring more awareness to the community about the issue of drug abuse, Hardies said.
“Just where we are in the country, things that have happened locally, there has been more interest,” she said.
