Gatlin sees red as doping questions linger

Justin Gatlin sounded off about repeated doping accusations from 2006 at the Prefontaine Classic press conference. Gatlin refused to admit he knowingly took banned substances and credited his performances at the age of 33 to training partners such as Isaiah Young. He also grew irritated with suggestions that he is still benefiting from steroid use a decade on and questioned the validity of tests using a laboratory mouse. These suggestions were refuted by Tim Layden and David Epstein. You can watch the full interview recorded by letsrun.com on their YouTube channel below.

Con Houlihan once told me that tomorrow is now. In taking on this venture I’ve started to try and put his words into action.

I worked for Con from 2007 till his passing in 2012 taking down his copy and a whole lot more. I have a Con Houlihan section which will go in to more depth on that.

I’m a long-time contributor to the Irish Runner magazine and am also working for the Irish Examiner.
