According to the BBC, Usain Bolt’s name was not present on a list that names over 800 athletes who between the years 2001 and 2012 allegedly returned blood tests described by experts as “highly suggestive of doping or at the very least abnormal”.

There have been recent allegations that one in seven of the 5,000 athletes who were tested over the said period had results that were considered “highly suggestive of doping or at the very least abnormal” by experts.

Based on the findings, a third of medals (146, including 55 golds) in endurance events at the Olympics and World Championships between 2001 and 2012 were won by athletes who have recorded suspicious tests. It is claimed that none of these athletes have been stripped of their medals.

It is not yet known if the names of any Jamaican athletes appear on the list.

  

The World Anti-Doping Agency has expressed concern with the allegations and intends to have them investigated promptly.

I figured that lots of athleyes have gotten away over the years so its not a surrise one just needs to look at some performances and you wonder..anyway Bolt would NEVER be on that list…his talents are just too natural
