The agent at the center of a investigation by a British newspaper into world 100-meter champion Justin Gatlin's entourage said Tuesday he invented a story about obtaining banned drugs to impress undercover reporters.Robert Wagner, who has occasionally represented Gatlin, and Gatlin's coach Dennis Mitchell were secretly filmed by the Daily Telegraph newspaper claiming they could obtain and administer human growth hormone and testosterone for $250,000 .Gatlin has long been a controversial figure after being banned for doping in 2001 for one year and in 2006 for four years.His longtime agent, former sprint hurdler Renaldo Nehemiah, told the newspaper that Wagner had represented Gatlin only two to three times and that Gatlin was not present when banned substances were allegedly discussed with Mitchell or Wagner.
