Britain loses Olympic title due to CJ Ujah doping

New scandals, but this time related to the Tokyo Summer Olympics 2020. The British team will be stripped of medal because their competitor from the men's 4 × 100-meter relay is positive for banned substances CJ Ujah was most sorry for his colleagues and apologized to everyone "I’m sorry that this situation has cost my teammates the medals they worked so hard and so long for, and which they richly deserved.

That is something I will regret for the rest of my life," CJ Ujah said Richard Kilty, a teammate of CJ Ujah is particularly disappointed after all "It's absolutely heartbreaking to finally hear the news that the medal is going to be stripped and wiped from history," he added.

"The happiness for me was to win an Olympic medal and give it to my son for him to take it into school and say 'my dad won an Olympic medal' "I never got to do that. The motivation is for the next two and a half years to make sure that job gets done properly next time [at Paris 2024]."

Kilty says they got an apology from Ujah, but everyone should be careful what they put into their bodies.
"We get that hammered home by British Athletics and UK Anti-Doping," said Kilty.

"They are the rules you have to follow and I have for the last 21 years." "It's just devastating that other teammates haven't followed the rules as strictly as the rest of us. And we've been burned by that.

"I am glad CJ has apologized to us, our families and the whole set-up. I'm thankful for the apology but, on the other hand, the rules are rules. "When you become a professional athlete, the main thing you sign up for is you are on a one-hour curfew for the rest of your life to provide the address and time you will be available for testing.

"You are responsible for everything that goes into your body – everything. You have to be accountable for that.
