VARIOUS OF BOLT WALKING THROUGH AIRPORT STORY: Sprinting great Usain Bolt is refusing to dwell on the disappointment of losing his Beijing Olympics 4x100 metres gold medal after his Jamaican team mate Nesta Carter tested positive for a banned stimulant. Bolt, who completed a remarkable 'treble treble' of 100m, 200m and 4x100m Olympic titles at the 2016 Rio Games, had his 2008 relay gold stripped last month after Carter's re-tested sample indicated he had taken methylhexaneamine. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) ordered Carter, who has already said he would appeal the decision to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), and team mates Bolt, Asafa Powell and Michael Frater to return their medals. "Initially disappointed, of course. But in life, things happen. I'm not sad... I'm just waiting to see what Nester's going to do, whether he's going to appeal," Bolt told reporters at Melbourne Airport on Wednesday (February 1) as he arrived ahead of the Nitro Athletics series. Bolt will lead an international team of "All Stars" in the Nitro Athletics series in Melbourne against four other teams representing England, China, New Zealand and Japan. He added that he is looking forward to the competition. The first meeting is on February 4, with the other two on February 9 and 11.
