It's a generally held view that Gatlin is a drug cheat. Have a read of this, it may change your mind:

2 bans.
1 for amphetamines, one for testosterone

1st ban reduced on appeal

2nd ban -8 years not life because he agreed to cooperate
Reduced to 4 years on appeal

Not a "drugs cheat". Just a cheat

Just a person who should have been banned for life

A person who has robbed - by his very presence - Coleman of being world champion

He should have been  banned for life. It's as simple as that.

If you swallow the cream n his legs story (the coach said it was his buttocks) then God bless your niaivity but that coach has had 7 others caught using banned substances so draw your own conclusions.

Agree with geordie here. Athletics still has a big problem with doping and has done for years. The dopers are always ahead of the system so its always coming out years later. Gatlin on the second strike should have been banned at the very least for life from the Olympics and World Champs. I can accept they come back after serving some time and can still earn a living from the sport on the diamond league circut but the Olympics and World Champs should take a zero tolerance approach imho.
