Jamaican Olympic Association consider appeal after Nesta Carter tests positive

Jamaica may appeal against the decision to strip the rest of its Beijing 4x100m relay squad of their gold medals after Nesta Carter’s failed drugs test.

Usain Bolt stands to lose one of his nine Olympic golds after a retest of Carter’s sample from the 2008 Games was found to contain a banned stimulant.

Michael Frater, Asafa Powell and Dwight Thomas also face forfeiting medals.

“We have to decide what the best legal process is,” Jamaican Olympic Association chief Mike Fennell said.
