About Justin
The 2013 season saw Gatlin continue to thrive in his comeback tour, earning a 100m silver at the USA Outdoor Championships and ending the year ranked behind only world record-holder Usain Bolt by Track & Field News. Gatlin completed a season of redemption in 2012 after serving a suspension for doping from 2006-2010. At 30 years old, Gatlin won a World Indoor 60m title, an Olympic bronze medal in the 100m and silver medal and American record in the 4x100m. The time he ran to win the World Indoor Championships in Istanbul equaled the time he ran to win the same event in 2003. When Gatlin won gold medals in both the 100m and 200m at the 2005 World Outdoor Championships, he was just the second man in history to win both those races at the same World Championships and his winning margin of 0.17 seconds in the 100m was the biggest in World Championships history. At the USA Outdoor Championships in 2005 Gatlin became the first American sprinter to complete the 100m, 200m double at the national championships since Kirk Baptiste in 1985. His personal best in the 100m of 9.85 to win the 2004 Olympic gold medal was the second fastest in Olympic history at that time. In just two collegiate seasons before turning professional Gatlin won six NCAA titles competing for the University of Tennessee. As a freshman for the Volunteers his time of 10.08 matched a then USA Junior record.
