Anti-doping officials are investigating allegations against two men linked to the world champion sprinter, Justin Gatlin.

According to the Daily Telegraph newspaper in Britain, the athlete’s agent, Robert Wagner, offered to supply performance-enhancing drugs to undercover reporters.

Gatlin’s coach, Dennis Mitchell, allegedly said doping was possible because the drugs used could not be detected.
