WADA Launches 'Extraordinary' Audit Of Jamaica's Drug Testing Prior To 2012 Olympics
Published October 15, 2013
IN THE DARK: The JAMAICA GLEANER reported IOC medical officials, WADA and Britain's anti-doping agency, which also "worked on London's huge drug-testing" program, revealed that "they were kept in the dark about the Jamaican testing lapses that Shirley exposed in an August letter." Howman: "There was a period of, and forgive me if I don't have the number of months right, but maybe five to six months during the beginning part of 2012 where there was no effective operation. No testing." WADA is "unhappy that Jamaica has not agreed to a swift inspection." Elliott said JADCO "could not accommodate the auditors at the date WADA wanted and was not expecting the visit before the end of the year." Howman said, "It doesn't over-impress us. If there's going to be that sort of delay, you need to have a better reason" (JAMAICA GLEANER, 10/14).
