Nesta CARTER - Jamaica - 2013 Bronze medal in 100m at World Championship.

Nesta Carter, in lane 8 on the left of the photograph, snatches third place in the

100 metres  final from his fellow Jamaicans

Kemar Bailey-Cole and Nickel Ashmeade, all three of whom just beat 10 seconds.


In 2016 Carter failed an anti-doping test for the banned stimulant methylhexanamine

when traces of the drug were found in Carter’s A and B samples. This happened when

454 frozen blood and urine samples from the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing were

retested by the International Olympic Committee.
