Tim Montgomery: my fall into drugs, prison and beatings
The story behind the fall of Tim Montgomery, the former 100m world record-holder who now trains in a pair of tennis shoes on a concrete track in an Alabama prison, is revealed by The Times today.
Montgomery is serving two sentences, one for dealing heroin, and is due to remain in jail until January 6, 2016. “I cannot express how bad it is,” he said of his prison life. During time in other prisons, he said, he has feared for his life every day.
