Jamaican sprinter Nesta Carter is getting ready to face the Court of Arbitration for sport (CAS) for his appeal against the ruling which stripped Jamaica’s men’s 4 by 100 metres relay team of the 2008 Beijing Olympic gold medal.
The appeal will be heard tomorrow.
Carter was disqualified from the race after he failed a drugs test for the banned energy boosting substance Methylhexaneamine following re-analysis by the IOC of samples stored after Beijing 2008.
If carter, who ran the first leg of the relay lose the appeal, then Trinidad and Tobago will be awarded the gold medal, japan the silver and Brazil the bronze.
Carter was also part of Jamaica’s 4x100m Olympic gold medal winning team at London 2012.
Carter was also a member of the 4x100m team which won gold medals at the 2011, 2013 and 2015 IAAF World Championships in Daegu, Moscow and Beijing respectively.
