Court Of Arbitration For Sport Blasts Jamaica Over Country's Anti-Doping Procedures

The Court of Arbitration for Sport "blasted Jamaican anti-doping officials on Tuesday for the mishandling of a drug test by sprinter Veronica Campbell-Brown that led to a successful appeal" of the three-time Olympic Gold Medalist's two-year ban, according to Keating & Raynor of REUTERS. In a "scathing" 58-page report explaining the decision to uphold Campbell-Brown's appeal, a CAS panel "cited errors in the collection and handling of the sprinter's urine sample last year that could have resulted in its contamination, calling into question the entire Jamaican anti-doping operation." The World Anti-Doping Agency, while "concurring mistakes were made in Campbell-Brown's case that were fundamental to the integrity of the testing process," said that it was confident the errors would not be repeated (REUTERS, 4/15).
