Usain Bolt Shocked By Surprise Drug Test Notice by Lekzyloaded: 1:44pm On Oct 15, 2018
Sprint legend Usain Bolt has expressed surprise after being handed a drug testing notice despite retiring from athletics and having no professional contract.

Bolt who quit athletics last year and is yet to be offered a professional contract by Australia’s Central Coast Mariners, where he is currently on trial, took to Instagram to share a video of the notice.

Sharing the video, he wrote;

“So guys I’ve retired from track and field looking to become a footballer but look at this,”

The demand for the out of competition test — to collect urine and blood — appears to have been issued by Football Federation Australia.

“How am I going to get a drug test today? I’m not even a professional footballer yet. Seriously,” said Bolt.

“So I asked the lady, ‘Why am I getting drug tested when I haven’t signed for a club yet?’ and she said they told her I’m an elite athlete so I have to get tested. Okay then.”

Despite his displeasure, it appears the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority guidelines mean he is eligible to be tested.

Their legislation defines an athlete as a “person who competes in sport” if “the sport has an anti-doping policy”.

The eight-time Olympic champion, who dominated sprinting after taking double individual gold at the Beijing Olympics in 2008, is now bidding to become a professional footballer.

He made his case on Friday by scoring two goals for the Mariners in a pre-season friendly.

The superstar, a massive Manchester United fan, has been handed a chance to train with the A-League side for an indefinite period in order to pursue his dream.

Oh, I feel that. I've been in similar situation in my life, unfortunately there are times, when the whole system is against you. In my case I've cheated a little bit during urine test. I've found such interesting stuff over the internet, you can check by yourself. It's about synthetical urine, you can read this article for example https://www.payspi.org/best-fake-pee-for-drug-test/ if you are interested. )) smiley
