Jamaica Senior Drug Tester Says Country's Drug Scandal 'Tip Of The Iceberg'
Published November 13, 2013
WADA BOSS SPEAKS OUT: The BBC reported WADA President John Fahey said Jamaica has "lost its way" on drug testing for athletes. Fahey was "also critical of the attitude towards drug testing in Kenya, which has also had a number of recent failed tests." But he admitted, "There is no power whatsoever for WADA under our code to compel anyone to do certain things." WADA officials "are due to discuss their visit to Jamaica." They "could make a series of recommendations to improve the Caribbean island's anti-doping policies." One of those "will be for Jamaica's anti-doping team to be 'mentored' by a more successful agency." Fahey: "We have asked them to enter an international partnership. We've found that's been very effective in other struggling areas of anti-doping" (BBC, 11/12).
