Coleman fighting for reputation after missing 3 drug tests: Reports

New York, Aug 22 (IANS): He has been the world's fastest man for the last three years, but Christian Coleman is now fighting for his reputation after allegedly missing a series of drugs tests.

According to a Sportsmail source-based report, the 23-year-old American sprinter, tipped as the successor to Usain Bolt, is disputing one of the three whereabouts failures in the last 12 months.

Coleman could face a lengthy ban if he is unsuccessful in having one of the three strikes cancelled, a report published on said.

This could rule him out of next month's World Championships in Qatar and more importantly next year's Olympics in Tokyo.

According to the United States Anti-Doping Agency website, 'any cumulation of three Missed Tests or Filing Failures in a 12-month period can result in a potential ADRV and a period of ineligibility of up to two years for a first violation'.

Coleman is the favourite to win gold in Qatar and Tokyo next year.
