Jamaican athlete returns adverse analytical finding

Voice of JAAA president Garth Gayle

Jamaica's track and field top brass is bracing for any fallout which may arise following the return of an adverse analytical finding by a locally-based athlete in recent days.

According to the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), an adverse analytical finding indicates the presence of prohibited substances or methods in a particular sample.

When contacted by Radio Jamaica Sports on Monday, president of the Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association (JAAA),  Garth Gayle was coy in his response.

While the JAAA boss stayed away from revealing any details of the athlete in question, Radio Jamaica Sports sources revealed that the "B" sample of the test which was collected by officials of the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission (JADCO), is now being analysed.

JADCO's chairman Alexander Williams declined to comment on the matter, when contacted by Radio Jamaica Sports on Monday afternoon.
