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.
“I don't understand why you would match a laboratory mouse to a human being.'' Yeah, that never works. https://t.co/DX0m3X5ZMZ
