Christian Coleman, the current world champion sprinter in the 100-metre distances has been suspended by the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) for missed doping tests.

Athletes cannot miss three tests during a 12-month period.

He was suspended and then got off in 2019 for the same infraction. His father defended his son online by chastising the Johnson brothers who own Let’s Run after they published the story.

The suspension’s length will be determined at a hearing with the AIU.

Coleman won the 100-metre event at the world championships in Doha, last year after the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) dropped his case for missed tests because of a technicality in a very confusing rule book.

The 24-year-old Atlanta, GA native has run the 100m as fast as 9.76 and the 200m in 19.85. He owns the world record for the 60m indoors event with his time of 6.34 from a meet in Albuquerque, NM in 2018.
