Jamaican king of international human speed, Usain Bolt, recognized the work of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) in finding 31 new cases of prohibited substance use during the Beijing 2008 Olympics.

The so-called “world’s fastest man” rejected the behavior of the guilty athletes and called the results that have arisen years after the outcomes of the Games “very bad news.”

Bolt said that recent discoveries affect him personally, because in a way it is harming the different disciplines. “It is hard for me and hard for the sport. It is something that has been tarnishing the sport for years.”

The sprinter, who holds world records in the 100 and 200 meters, also praised the WADA’s continuing investigations. “They are doing a very good job of cleaning up the sport. They’ve proven that they’re going to catch anybody who has cheated,” he said.
