Unhappy Bolt willing to help finance appeal over 2008 Olympic relay gold

The greatest Jamaican Sprinter Usain bolt history was curtailed Wednesday after his teammate Nesta Carter tested infallible for a banned substances.

Carter, who only competed in the 4x100m relays at Beijing 2008, was disqualified from the Games after his sample confirmed the presence of the prohibited substance methylhexaneamine, following retroactive testing.

Last June, when reports of Carter's positive test first broke, Bolt was largely philosophical about the prospect of returning one of his gold medals but admitted that to do so would be hard.

The nasal decongestant was only added to the World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada) banned list in 2010, two years after Carter ran in the Chinese capital, though it had been outlawed as an "unspecified stimulant" by the governing body.

First-leg specialist Carter has been a vital member of Jamaica's dominant squad, helping the Caribbean island win gold medals at the 2008 and 2012 Olympics and the 2011, 2013 and 2015 world championships.
