Lausanne – Jamaican sprinter Nesta Carter was present at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) on Wednesday to contest his disqualification for doping, a ruling that saw of one of his nine Olympic gold medals.

Accompanied by two lawyers, 32-year-old Carter hid his face as he arrived by taxi and entered CAS buildings, according to an AFP photographer.

Jamaica originally won five golds in the sprint events at the 2008 Games in Beijing.

However, the Bolt-anchored 4x100m men’s relay team had to give their golds back in January after Carter, the sixth fastest sprinter of all time, retrospectively tested positive for the stimulant methylhexanamine.
