Gatlin hopes to shake off cheat tag
30 Aug 2015 11:11
Justin Gatlin hopes the public will see him as a "human being" rather than a drugs cheat after the World Championships.
Athletics is currently experiencing one of the most difficult times in the sport's history, with the spate of doping allegations dominating the build-up to the event in Beijing.
Gatlin has been cast as the number one villain having previously failed two drugs tests, leading to a certain sense of relief when Usain Bolt pipped him to gold in the 100 and 200 metres.
The American's agent, Renaldo Nehemiah, said his client was unfairly carrying the burden of all drug cheats and the sprinter himself hopes these championships have changed the public's perception.
