Pensacola’s Justin Gatlin will have to Sit-Out Beijing Olympics

After testing positive for steroids in July of 2006, the U.S. Anti-doping Agency has told Justin Gatlin that he has been banned from competing in organized running events until the 2010. This means that Gatlin will not be able to participate in the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

Gatlin faced a possible lifetime ban from the sport, but two steroid tests proved to be inconclusive.

Keep your head up Justin. Stay healthy, don’t get near the roids and you’ll kickass in the 2012 London Olympics.

No Beijing Olympics for Justin Gatlin
