According to Reuters news agency, Jamaican sprinter Nesta Carter's B sample from Beijing Olympics has returned positive. 

Last week news broke out that Jamaican sprint start Nesta Carter, the multiple 4x100m gold medalist at Olympics and world championships, has tested positive for methylhexanamin after International Olympic Committee (IOC) conducted retests of 454 sample from Beijing Olympics. 

On Wednesday reuters revealed that Carter's B sample has also tested positive for the prohibited stimulant methylhexanamin. 

At the Beijing Olympic Carter won gold medal together with Asafa Powell, Michael Frater and Usain Bolt. Carter ran the opening leg in that  4x100m relay final in Beijing Olympics. 

He was also on Jamaican Relay teams that won gold medals at the 2012 Olympics and the 2011, 2013 and 2015 world championships.

Over a month ago IOC started to retest frozen sample from 2008 and 2012 Olympic using the most advanced technologies. Their targets were athletes that has the potential to compete at the 2016 Rio Olympics this August. Their retests returned 34 positives from Beijing Olympics and 23 from London Olympics. 

"It is still being worked out," 

"What we want to do, and are trying to do, is target athletes who have positive results and stop them from competing in Rio." the IOC spokesman Mark Adams.
