Hosts of Sports Nation Live, Leighton Levy, says the men’s 100- metres will lose some of its excitement if Christian Coleman does not get to compete at the 2019 IAAF World Championships, in Doha, Qatar.
Coleman, the world’s fastest man for the past three years, could face a lengthy ban if he fails to overturn claims of three ‘whereabouts failures’ regarding drug testing.
Under the World Anti-Doping Agency’s whereabouts system, athletes must give details of where they will be for one hour every day in case they are required for testing.
Coleman, who is the strong favourite to claim a first world 100m title next month, has allegedly fallen foul of three violations over the past year.
Levy says Coleman’s absence will result in the blue ribbon event losing some of its competitive edge
