Bemused Bolt blasts drug test notice


//

An aggrieved Usain Bolt has taken to Instagram to express his disbelief at being issued a drug testing notice seemingly by Football Federation Australia.

Despite scoring his first goals for the Central Coast Mariners on Friday night, the eight-time Olympic gold medallist isn’t officially signed as professional footballer as he vies for a Hyundai A-League contract.

“So guys I’ve retired from track and field looking to become a footballer but look at this,” Bolt said via an Instagram story zooming in on the notice.

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

“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.”

The Australian Sports Anti-doping Authority states that any sportsperson “who meets our definition of ‘Athlete’ under the ASADA Act and ASADA Regulations, may be subject to both in-competition and out-of-competition sample collection.”

That means that despite Bolt’s bemusement the former world’s fastest man may have to comply.

“We maintain a Registered Testing Pool (RTP) and a Domestic Testing Pool (DTP) for the purposes of implementing, co-ordinating, administering, monitoring and enforcing effective doping control measures,” the ASADA website reads.

Bolt scores at the double

“If an athlete is selected to be part of the RTP or the DTP they will be informed by us or their sporting organisation. Athletes in the RTP and DTP, in addition to any other athlete who meets our definition of ‘Athlete’ under the ASADA Act and ASADA Regulations, may be subject to both in-competition and out-of-competition sample collection.”

Bolt reignited his bid for a professional contract with a clinical brace against Macarthur South West United on Friday night.

Following his late substitution the striker celebrated his personal achievement but remained focused on his future.

“I think I made some slight mistakes but it’s my first real game with the first team. I’m just happy I got a chance and I’m proud of myself,” he said.

“It was a big deal, scoring a goal in my first real match is a big deal. To score two goals, it’s a good feeling, it’s what I’m working towards, I try to improve myself, I try to get better and I’m doing that.”
