by May 18th, 2016

Triple sprint world record holder Usain Bolt has labeled the latest doping revelations as another ‘rough patch’ for the sport of track and field.

The sport has found itself battling a tarnished reputation following seemingly endless waves of doping scandals in recent years and just yesterday the IAAF suggested that track and field should brace for another round of scandal….. as 31 athletes that were caught in re-tests of Beijing 2008 samples could be banned from competing at the Rio de Janeiro Games.

Regarding the latest doping revelation bolt says such news is rough on the sport of athletics something that’s been tarnishing the sport for years.

The Jamaican however, commended the various watchdog bodies for doing a good job of ensuring that those who did cross the line were punished.

The global legend who is now undergoing hamstring treatment in Germany opened his season with victory in Cayman on the weekend posting 10.05 seconds, and is expected to compete in the 100 meters at the Golden Spike meet in the eastern Czech City of Ostrava on Friday.
