FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASECLERMONT, FL--- SEPTEMBER 26, 2014--- Nestled in the picturesque backdrop of Central Florida, amidst palm trees and tropical weather, are many striking views for the sports enthusiast. Whether you call your sport of choice world-class American College Football, Soccer or Track and Field, Central Florida has year round facilities to accommodate it.
Due to its consistently warm climate and its distinction of the only place in Florida that has hills and a mountain, Clermont is prime real-estate for training-world-class and Olympic hopefuls in the sport of Track & Field. Just 20 miles northwest of Orlando, Clermont is host to the training regimen of many of the world's elite track athletes, including Tyson Gay, Justin Gatlin and Veronica Campbell Brown.
If the Hills of Clermont could speak, they would share the story that they have in common with their sister hills of Jamaica, West Indies; the womb that gives birth to names such as Usain Bolt, Yohan Blake and Veronica Campbell-Brown; these names dominate the sport of Track & Field. The story is of Clermont resident, Steve Mullings who was born in Jamaica and rose to become one of its most celebrated Track and Field athletes.
Steve Mullings fell from grace when he was found guilty of competing with what was thought to be a performance enhancing drug. This revelation not only brought down a judgment of "Banned for Life", but a scandal that was a blow to the Achilles tendon of the governing body of this celebrated sport for their alleged mishandling of his investigation.
With the passionate intent of clearing his name and making sure that this doesn't happen to any other athlete, Steve submitted himself to a third party military-style Lie Detection and Truth Verification Exam. The results as quoted are, "In September 2014 Criminal Justice Associates, Lie Detection Division, gave Steve Mullings lie detection-truth verification exams for which he passed. The questions were centered around drug usage and related events that led up to him being banned from the sport."

"I have a moral obligation to fight this injustice. I want to make sure this does not happen to any other athlete regardless of sport, federation or nationality. In a few years my son will be able to use the computer and I want to make sure whatever he finds on the Internet about his dad is the truth" All I want is the truth," says Mullings.
Banned for Life is Steve Mullings' story about being raised to be the best although your circumstances were far from such. Steve recounts his story from humble beginnings to being instilled with the heart for God and the will of a champion. "I never was prepared for what life had in store for me once I became better than those who were hand-picked to be out-front. I thought once you put the work in and you crossed the finish line first, there would be no more discussion. I learned that between the milli-seconds and the headwind on a track there were politics and ruthless business", says Mullings. He goes on to say, "I wrote this book with my co-author O'Neil Reid to encourage others that your current position will not necessarily be your outcome."
Banned for Life, The Steve Mullings Story speaks of hope, determination, heartbreak, unconditional love and redemption. Wise beyond his years, your audience will find Steve Mullings to be transparent, sincere and encouraging.
Banned for Life is available in paperback and hardcover editions for $20.99 and $37.99 respectively from True Perspective Publishing House online and wherever books are sold.
