Usain Bolt gone, doping back as the main topic in sprint game

Usain Bolt is in the rearview mirror, replaced by — what else? — an unfolding doping saga in track and field.
The title of "World's Fastest Man" now that Bolt is on the sideline belongs to American 100-meter sprinter Christian Coleman, who almost was banned from this month's world championships because he had missed too many drug tests.
Now that Bolt is gone, the top two contenders in Saturday's 100-meter final are expected to be Coleman and defending champion Justin Gatlin, a 37-year-old who has been suspended twice for doping violations and whose victory at worlds in London in 2017 was greeted with skepticism from the media and boos from the stands.
