Gatlin gold not the per­fect script: Coe

Muscat Daily - - SPORTS -

The pres­i­dent of ath­let­ics' gov­ern­ing body, (IAAF), Se­bas­tian Coe, said on Sun­day that Justin Gatlin's 100m vic­tory on Sat­ur­day was "not the per­fect script". "I'm not eu­lo­gis­tic that some­one who has served two bans has walked off with one of our glit­ter­ing prizes," said Coe. "But he is el­i­gi­ble to be here." Gatlin was booed by the crowd as he cel­e­brated, but was em­braced by Bolt on the fin­ish line. Coe added, "It's not the per­fect script. I thought Usain was very gen­er­ous with the ob­ser­va­tions he made. That must have been a bit­ter event for him to swal­low. He was big­ger than the mo­ment and it typ­i­fies his ca­reer."
