New doping revelation could see T&T being awarded 2008 Olympic 4x100 gold medal

Trinidad and Tobago's 2008 Olympic 4x100 metre team could be awarded the gold medal for the event, after placing second at the Bird Nest Stadium in Beijing.

The Gleaner Newspaper in Jamaica is now reporting that Jamaican Nesta Carter, who was part of Jamaica's gold medal team, has been identified as one of 32 athletes who failed a retrospective drugs test.

That now puts Jamaica's gold medal in jeopardy.

The Gleaner said a retest of Carter`s `A` sample from the Beijing Games had found traces of the banned stimulant Methylexaneamine.
