August 25, 2019
“We can confirm that he (Coleman) has been notified and charged under the USADA Protocol of a potential anti-doping rule violation for failing to properly file his whereabouts information,” USADA said in a statement to Reuters.
“Under the World Anti-Doping Code three whereabouts failures within a 12-month period may be considered an anti-doping rule violation.” USADA added.
“What has been widely reported concerning filing violations in simply not true,” the 23-year-old Coleman said in a statement.
“I’m not a guy who takes any supplements at all, so I’m never concerned about taking drug tests, at any times,” Coleman added.
“I am confident the upcoming hearing on September 4 will clear the matter and I will compete at the world championships in Doha this fall,” he said.
“Sometime after the hearing, I will be free to answer questions about the matter, but for now I must reserve and respect the process.”
