Speaking candidly, Olympian Tim Montgomery looks back on successful, troubled past
Former Olympic track athlete Tim Montgomery, 37, will share his story of using performance enhancing drugs with students at Loften High School in Gainesville on Wednesday.

Montgomery sat down with Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM’s Dana Lewin on Tuesday to tell his story about making one wrong decision that changed his life forever.
