Dr. Herb Elliott, Chairman of the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission (JADCO) has confirmed receiving reports of adverse analytical findings from ‘A’samples for five Jamaican athletes.
“The process of the result management has commenced in accordance with the JADCO Anti-doping rules” Dr. Elliott told RJR Sports.
“We cannot disclose any further information until the athletes have responded to notification of the ‘A’ sample” he added.
Two Olympic medallists are among five Jamaicans who returned adverse analytical findings for banned performance enhancing drugs at the National Championships in June.
According to highly placed track and field sources, four of the athletes are in the senior ranks, while the fifth is a junior.
Two of those athletes are sprinters while the other three athletes compete in the field events.
