Justin Gatlin Biography
American sprinter, Justin Gatlin was born February 10, 1982. He is an Olympic gold medalist, with a 100 m personal best of 9.85 seconds. He is currently serving a four year ban from track and field for testing positive for a banned substance; Gatlin had appealed the ban earlier this year, but it was later denied.
On August 7, 2005, Gatlin clocked a 100 m time of 9.88 seconds to win the World Championship in Helsinki. Starting as a favorite and with world record holder Asafa Powell not competing due to injury, Gatlin beat his competitors by the widest margin ever seen at a men's World Championship 100 m to capture the Olympic-World Championship double.
Gatlin also won the 200 m in Helsinki, becoming the second person in athletics history to win both sprint distances during a single World Championship (the first was Maurice Greene during the 1999 championships in Seville and the third - Tyson Gay during the 2007 championships in Osaka). In the 200 m event, American athletes earned the top four places, the first time any country had done so in World Championship athletics history.
