American sprinter Christian Coleman has defended himself and said he has”never failed a drug test and not will”.
Coleman, 23, was charged with missing three medications tests and faced an automatic ban.
However, the US Anti-Doping Agency (Usada) withdrew the bill earlier this month after getting guidance from the World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada).
“I set my heart and spirit to track and field, and worked hard to get where I am today,” Coleman wrote on Instagram.
“It’s simply disrespectful when imitation fans speculate and talk about drugs in connection to the wonderful athletes we have in this particular sport.
“It really does nothing but hold the game back from the popularity I am aware that it can reach later on.
“I should not have to defend myself for the first and last time that I actually do not take any supplements or protein powders – not anything much legal to aid with recovery.”
Coleman, who ran a world-leading time of 9.81 moments in the 100m in the Diamond League in California in June, is free to compete in the World Athletics Championships, starting in Doha on 28 September, and the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.
Usada had claimed Coleman had missed drug tests on June, 2018, as well as 16 January and 26 April of this year – with three tests that were missed in a 12-month period resulting in a ban.
However, as the International Standard for Testing and Tests (ISTI) says a”filing failure” links back into the first day of the quarter,” Coleman argued that the first of these dates should be 1 April, 2018.
“I work hard at practice, drink water, rest, and work even harder the following day,” added Coleman.
“Therefore, I have never failed a drug test and never . I am the biggest advocate for clean sport what is needed to make it on the degree and since I know the sacrifice.
“There have been a great deal of wrong things mentioned from the media within the past couple of weeks; it’s a shame we live in a world where [story] clicks equals cash, yet people still think everything they see.
“Enormous thank you to all of my fans. Can’t wait for World Champs. Watchy’all in Doha.”
