Speaking candidly, Olympian Tim Montgomery looks back on successful, troubled past

Interview with Tim Montgomery

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.

In 2005, the native of Gaffney, S.C., was stripped of all of his results, records and awards, including his world-record 9.7-second 100-meter race.

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.
