Both Coleman and the US Anti-Doping Agency released statements Saturday regarding the case.

(AP Photo/Jeff Chiu, File) USADA said Coleman could be subject to a violation for three failures to provide his whereabouts over a 12-month period. Coleman, the US national champion at 100 meters, said “what has been widely reported concerning filing violations is simply not true,” and he expects to be cleared. World championships start Sept. 28 in Qatar, and Coleman would bring the year’s fastest time (9.81 seconds) into the meet. Athletes are required to give authorities their whereabouts information so they can be tested without notice outside of competition. USADA said Coleman’s case has been put on a fast track, and the arbitration panel will rule by the end of the day on Sept. 5. The agency said two of the three missed tests were directed by USADA testers, and the third was directed by the Athletics Integrity Unit, which handles anti-doping cases for track’s international federation (IAAF). The 23-year-old Coleman finished second to Justin Gatlin — and a spot ahead of Usain Bolt — at the 2017 world championships. He posted the fastest 100 time in 2017, 2018 and this year. “Sometime after the hearing, I will be free to answer questions about the matter,” Coleman said in his statement, “but for now I must reserve and respect the process.” Tags: Read more: Manila Bulletin News
