While Coleman will receive generous pleasure for his display here, America’s great track Michael Johnson said before the competition that controversy surrounding Coleman “completely disqualifies” him from being the sport’s face.
In 12 months before withdrawing the statement, the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency charged Coleman with missing three drug tests.
Christian Coleman shrugged off his World Championship build-up controversy to win in 9.76 seconds the 100 m final.
“I am humble, I am just here to win titles,”
“It is an incredible time. I think the sky’s the limit, I think I still have a lot of things I can work on and improve, I think I can keep dropping my time.” Coleman said afterwards.
