USADA, IAAF launch investigation into Justin Gatlin doping report

U.S. sprinter Justin Gatlin arrives for a training session ahead of the World Athletics Championships in London. World 100-meter champion Justin Gatlin says he has fired coach Dennis Mitchell follo

Since returning to the track Gatlin has claimed to be clean and has offered to release data from tests in the past five years.

"The complex things are safe in terms of getting tested because they can't find it".

It is alleged Mitchell and Wagner were offered to smuggle prescription testosterone and human-growth hormone acquired under a false name to the United States for $325,000.

The Telegraph said investigations into the actions of those connected to Gatlin are being investigated by the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU), set up this year by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) and the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA). In 2006, he served a four-year suspension after testing positive for testosterone, which he said came from a type of cream a massage therapist rubbed onto his leg.

The statement read: "Investigations stemming from tips and whistleblowers play a critical role in anti-doping efforts".

Espiricueta said she was saddened by the letter and chose to help fulfill at least one of her student's Christmas wishes. Garcia said she knelt down next to Crystal as she unwrapped the balls with a big smile on her face.

The journalists posed as representatives of a film company wanting to make a sports film who were looking for a coach to train their star to look like an athlete. "It's only fair to let due process occur before jumping to any conclusions".

"These allegations are extremely serious and I know the independent Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) will investigate in accordance with its mandate", IAAF president Seb Coe said in a statement.

Doping investigations are not new territory for Gatlin.

Gatlin won the 100-metre final at the 2017 World Championships on August 6 at the London Stadium, spoiling the final individual race of the career of Jamaican legend Usain Bolt, who had to settle for third. "Under the IAAF Rules, all athlete support personnel - agents, coaches etc - are bound by both the IAAF anti-doping code and IAAF integrity code of conduct".

"However, the IAAF recognizes as an industry we need to do more and we are".
