World 100m champion Christian Coleman to miss Olympics after ban


World 100 metres champion Christian Coleman will miss next year’s Tokyo Olympics after being banned for two years for breaching whereabouts rules, the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) said.

Coleman, who narrowly escaped a ban last year for missing three doping tests, was provisionally suspended by the AIU in June.

The American sprinter had claimed at the time that anti-doping officials had not followed procedure when he missed them after going Christmas shopping on December 9, 2019 at a time when he had said he would be at home.

“We impose on the athlete a period of ineligibility of two years, which will end on May 13, 2022,” the AIU said in a statement on its website on Tuesday (Wednesday AEDT).
