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.

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.

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.
