Bolt not worried over Carter case

Nesta Carter

Usain Bolt is paying cursory attention to the drug case involving Nesta Carter, though it has implications for the Gold medal from the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games he had to return.

Carter tested positive for Methylhexanamine during a re-test of the samples from the Beijing Olympics, meaning the gold medal he won as part of Jamaica’s 4x100-metre team was revoked.

That team was made up of Bolt, Carter, Michael Frater, Asafa Powell, and Dwight Thomas.

Carter took his case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in November, where he argued the drug was not on the World Anti-Doping Agency’s prohibited list in 2008. The court will disclose its judgement early in the new year.

“I can't really stress. I haven't really been following it (Carter's hearing). I am just waiting on the time for them (CAS) to say what is what,” said Bolt.

According to Bolt, his performances have not been questioned and he is a satisfied man, only looking forward to what’s next.

“I am just focusing on which direction I want my career to go. I have already done it. Yes, the medal is gone, but I already performed, and I'm now just trying to figure out what I want to do with the rest of my career, and when they decide, they decide," Bolt said.

"It was all worth it. The losses, the injuries - everything I've been through - it's all worth it. It's a wonderful thing to look back and see what your career has brought you. I'm very happy and proud of myself for the work. It's just a good time and I am in a good place," he added.
