This competition will be the first contested since February 2020 by the 25-year-old athlete. “I think it will be emotional to come back here and finally show my worth again,” Coleman told Reuters.

Usain Bolt’s record as a goal

Referring to his localization issues, he said, “I think it leads to being more responsible.” The Atlanta native never failed a doping test, but was suspended after three location failures. “These are the rules and I just have to improve,” he continued.
