Mo Farah

London, July 31 - A UK Athletics review on the doping claims against Mo Farah's coach Alberto Salazar on Thursday has found no evidence of impropriety against the British sprinter.

A statement released by UK Athletics said that none of the 'extensive information' supplied to the review panel contained 'any evidence of impropriety' by Farah or gave them reason to 'question the appropriateness of the input' into his preparation given by Salazar's team, the BBC reported.

London, July 24 - Six-time Olympic gold medallist Usain Bolt has insisted that he is 'not worried' to face in-form American sprinter Justin Gatlin at next month's World Championships in Beijing.

The Jamaican, who holds the world record in both 100 metres and 200 metres, said that he was not planning to lose in Beijing despite his struggles with form this year.

Bolt, who will compete in the 100m at the Anniversary Games in London on Friday, insisted that he was not worried to face fellow sprinter Gatlin despite knowing the fact that the latter had been on a winning streak this season.

London, July 18 - American sprinter Justin Gatlin continued his brilliant run at Diamond League as he achieved his 23rd successive win after cruising to 100 metre race in 9.78 seconds in Monaco.

Gatlin, starting in lane number three, blasted out of the blocks and streaked ahead of the field reduced to seven after Trayvon Bromell was disqualified for a false start.

Gatlin, who is on a string of 26 unbeaten run from August 2013, said that the Olympian should not be ruled out, despite any talk about potential injury, Sport24 reported.
