Coleman will appeal...


No one should be surprised by the recent announcement by Emmanuel Hudson, the manager of Christian Coleman. Appealing the AIU decision is what Mr. Coleman should do.

My issue is this. As there had already been such an experience, Mr. Coleman should have stayed at home during his Whereabouts time, 7.15 PM to 8.15 PM on December 9, 2019. I hate writing about this situation.

I hope that younger athletes see that, as an elite athlete, Whereabouts is part of what an elite athlete has to recognize as a daily responsibility.

Coleman will appeal

WASHINGTON (USA): World champion Christian Coleman will appeal his two-year suspension announced this week for missing doping tests. HSI, the management agency of the world 100m champion, released a statement on Twitter on his behalf. It reads: "The decision of the Disciplinary Tribunal established under the World Athletics Rules is unfortunate and will be immediately appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport. Mr. Coleman has nothing further to say until such time as the matter can be heard in the Court of jurisdiction."
