COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - Former Jamaican track star Raymond Stewart, who went on to coach banished American sprinter Jerome Young and others, has been kicked out of the sport for life for obtaining performance-enhancing drugs for his athletes.
The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency announced the ban Monday, after an arbitration panel determined Stewart bought drugs from Angel Memo Heredia, whose cooperation has been used in investigations of banned coach Trevor Graham, sprinter Crystal Cox and others.
Stewart was a 100-meter specialist who appeared in four Olympics for Jamaica and won a silver medal in the 400-meter relay at the 1984 Games.
He joins Graham and Remi Korchemny as the third coach to be kicked out of track for a role in helping athletes obtain and take drugs.
