U.S. sprinter Mike Rodgers has conventional a nine-month ban for a failed drug test but will still be able to fight in the London Olympics if he qualifies, the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) said on Thursday.

The former American 100 metres champion, who tested positive at an event in Italy last July, will be disqualified through April 19, making him eligible for the U.S. Olympic trials in June if he meets testing necessities.
USADA said Rodgers, the second fastest American and seventh fastest globally last year at 100 metres, gave and inaccurate and misleading testimony at his hearing but eventually agreed to his ban before the negotiation panel could act upon it.
Rodgers said he has since learned that the disqualified refreshment methylhexaneamine, found in many energy drinks and nutritional supplements, is acceptable in out-of-contest training but banned from in-competition.
Needless to say, this has been both a awesome and enlightening practice,Rodgers said in a statement.I made a huge fault and take full responsibility for my actions.
