Justin Gatlin: 'Where's the incentive for athletes to stay drug

Usain Bolt parties hard with girlfriend Kasi Bennett at London cabaret club

It was an unbelievable turnaround for Gatlin, who was the Olympic champion in 2004 before Bolt emerged and won an unprecedented three straight 100-meter titles at the Olympics.

Bolt, who is expected to be a part of Jamaican title defence in men's 4x100m relay on August 12, came third, behind Gatlin and another American Christian Coleman.

While all the attention was focused squarely on Bolt as he prepared for the 100m final at the world championships in London, he was momentarily forgotten as a rowdy fan ran across the track without any clothes. "They need to go and look at what was said". "Only here. He only gets it here", he said, as quoted by The Times. Coe said the result, Bolt coming third in his final race, was "not the ideal script".

Coe, the IAAF president, told the BBC that he's "not eulogistic at the thought of somebody who has served two bans in our sport walking off with one of the biggest prizes our sport has to offer".

Willie said Justin had been fully rehabilitated in the USA and that he could be a role model for children.

Coe reiterated his support for life bans for convicted drug cheats, but used Gatlin's example to illustrate how legal systems worldwide have frustrated efforts to impose more severe punishments.

There was a case of déjà vu at the London Stadium here in London, England, yesterday, Trinidad and Tobago sprinters Michelle-Lee Ahye and Kelly-Ann Baptiste repeating their historic feat of two years ago, in Beijing, China.

This ban, however, was also halved by an arbitration panel in 2007. "One got watered down, which made it very hard for the second ban".

Because of his doping past, Gatlin was booed in London before and after the race.

The second ban, a positive test in 2006 for testosterone, was reduced from eight years to four.
