Now Gatliin has reveresed course and is praising the Beijing organizers:
"Emotional day. All is fine with Beijing Org & me," he posted on Twitter.
"We have a great relationship and I look forward to being there in Aug for worlds & next year for the meet."
There was a money dispute that the agent did not resolve prior to departure from Doha. On arrival what the agent thought was the deal was far less than what was discussed. With the budget spent meet organizers could not pay, pissed because of the travel Gatlin spoke out and departed.
Gatlin is smart now to retract his emotional outburst knowing that future races could be big paydays in China and don't burn your bridges.
