Following winning the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay races at the Rio Olympic games, Usain Bolt became the most decorated track & field Olympians of all time with nine gold medals… that is he was. In an unfortunate turn of events, Bolt is now required to return one of his Olympic gold medals back to the IOC.
The gold medal in question is the medal Bolt earned as part of the 4×100-meter relay team in 2008. According to the IOC, the judgement comes as a result of a doping case involving one of his then teammates, Nesta Carter. Carter reportedly tested positive for methylhexaneamine, a banned stimulant, following a reanalysis of samples taken from Bolt, Carter, Michael Frater and Asafa Powell during the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. As a result, the Jamaican team has been disqualified and each of the athletes are now forced to return their medals.
“The Jamaican team is disqualified,” the IOC said in a statement released early Wednesday. “The corresponding medals, medalist pins, and diplomas are withdrawn and shall be returned.”

With the ruling, Trinidad and Tobago will now receive the gold medal in the race while Japan will be upgraded to silver and Brazil the bronze.
While the ruling is a tough loss for Bolt to swallow, as it impacts his total number of Olympic gold medals, the judgement ultimately does not tarnish his already spectacular legacy and reputation. He is still considered and will still go down as one of the greatest sprinters of all time. As of now, Bolt has yet to comment on the ruling, though expect a response soon. In the mean time, take a look at the then record-setting 4x100m relay in question:
