Jamaican team stripped of relay gold at 2008 Beijing Olympics
The newspapers reported that the Jamaican team was stripped of the 4X 100 meters gold at the 2008 Beijing Olympics due to a failed dope test
The Jamaican sprinter Nesta Carter had run the first leg of the 4X100 meters relay, which was won by the Jamaican team in a record time of 37.10 seconds
In a fresh analysis of the Beijing samples in 2016, the International Olympics committe found that Carter tested positive for the banned drug metflyhexaneamine, a stimulant. Jamaica was disqualified and stripped of the gold medal.
Nesta Carter had appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, against the disqualification, however the judging panel dismissed the appeal, so the Jamaican relay team which also included Usain bolt will no longer retain the gold medal.
