Justin Gatlin: Why Do British Fans Hate Him So Much?

08 Agosto 2017, 08:17 | Cornelio Vivanco

Gatlin was banned for eight years, avoiding a lifetime ban in exchange for his co-operation with doping authorities.

Gatlin genuflected to Bolt after the race to show his respect to the most successful sprinter in history, a man many inside the stadium hoped would sign off triumphantly.

The run, just a matter of months after Hughes, born in Anguilla and educated in Jamaica, had taken up British citizenship, seemed to justify the willingness of GB Athletics to...

This time he paid the price for getting out slowly as he was dethroned by Gatlin, who was roundly booed throughout the competition having previously served two doping bans.

Gatlin, who has served two doping bans, blew a kiss to the crowd and clasped his hands together as he received his medal from world athletics chief Coe, who hours earlier had branded his triumph "not the ideal script".

"I thought Usain was very generous with the observations he made".

"We'll see, we haven't done any baton changes as yet with the guys, but I feel we are ready", the 11-time World Championships gold medallist said of their chances.

"It's just so surreal right now - I jumped in the crowd and went wild", Gatlin said. "I came out and did my best; win, lose or draw".

With that in mind, it shouldn't come as a surprise that there were boos scattered among cheers (or rather, cheers scattered among boos) when he won the 100-meter dash in London this weekend, defeating crowd favorite Usain Bolt.

Coe reiterated his support for life bans for convicted drug cheats, but used Gatlin's example to illustrate how legal systems worldwide have frustrated efforts to impose more severe punishments.

"It's worth remembering that Gatlin's first ban was for amphetamines, and the case against him was at the more serious end". He has received two doping bans within his career.

"That then got watered down. We applied for an eight-year ban and again that got lost", added the 60-year-old. When his name was announced the crowd booed him and yelled negative comments.

The subject of Gatlin also prompted Michael Johnson, the former Olympic champion, to clash with his BBC colleague Steve Cram.

Perhaps Bolt was thrown by the interruption, as he went on to finish third in the final race of his career. "We are rivals on the track but in the warm-down area we joke and have a good time".
