JA athletes cleared of doping

| 11/08/2009

(Jamaica Observer): The disciplinary committee of the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission (JADCO) yesterday cleared the four athletes who returned positive results for banned substances at Jamaica’s National Senior Trials between June 26 and 28, but the athletes’ participation at the 12th IAAF World Championships in Berlin, Germany, remains in doubt. Yohan Blake (left), Marvin Anderson, Allodin Fothergill and Lansford Spence got the verdict from the Kent Gammon-led disciplinary committee yesterday, thus joining Sheri-Ann Brooks, the fifth athlete, who was cleared of doping charges last Wednesday due to procedural errors with the testing of her ‘B’ sample.
