The next record Tim Montgomery is set to create is his own prison record. The former Olympian sprinter was busted for distributing heroin and will serve a mandatory five-year sentence.

Tim Montgomery was caught selling heroin to an undercover agent, according to the AFP, and pled guilty to his charges. In 2002, Tim Montgomery set a world record in the 100-meter dash; three years later, that record was expunged after Montgomery was linked to the BALCO steroid scandal.

Tim Montgomery's five-year prison term will add to the three years and 10 months he was sentenced in May for a conspiracy and bank fraud scandal from April 2007. Stats for Fallen Heroes Trending: Older & Chilly
