Bolt and Jamaica's relay team closer to losing Olympic gold!

Olympic champion Usain Bolt and the rest of the Jamaican 4x100m relay team are a step closer to losing their Beijing Olympic gold medal, after a sample from one of the team returned a second positive test for a banned stimulant. Reuters is reporting Nesta Carter's "B" sample has returned a positive result for the banned substance methylhexanamin .

The Jamaica Olympic Association said last week it had received notification from the International Olympic Committee that one of its competitors had returned a postive dope test. Carter, who has helped Jamaican 4x100 metre relay teams to Olympic and world championship titles, tested positive for the banned stimulant methylhexanamin in a re-test of 454 samples from the 2008 Beijing Games. If this Jamaica loses the medal, the Trinidad and Tobago would be promoted to the gold, Japan to the silver and Brazil to the bronze.
