Jamaica sprinter Livermore tests positive says JADCO

By Kayon Raynor

KINGSTON, Jamaica, Jul 8 (Reuters) Jamaica's Commonwealth Games 200-metres bronze medallist Jason Livermore could face a four-year ban after returning a positive test for a banned substance in December, the chairman of the country's Anti-Doping Disciplinary Panel said. Yesterday Kent Gammon, who headed the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission's (JADCO) independent three-member panel, told Reuters that the 29-year-old Livermore had returned the positive result in an out-of-competition test on December16. Livermore declined to comment on Gammon's statement when contacted by Reuters. Gammon would not give the name or type of the alleged banned substance but said Livermore had violated Article 2.1 of JADCO's anti-doping rules, which refers to the "Presence of a prohibited substance or its metabolites or markers in an athlete's sample". Livermore, who also won gold at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in the 4x100m with Usain Bolt, Kemar Bailey-Cole and Nickel Ashmeade, had a preliminary hearing yesterday in front of the disciplinary panel at the Jamaica Conference Centre. He will start the fight to clear his name at a full hearing on September 11 to be attended by JADCO and his representatives. Sources close to the case told Reuters Livermore had not asked for his 'B' sample to be tested. Livermore declined to comment when asked by Reuters if he had requested such a test. Livermore, a 200m semi-finalist at the 2013 world championships in Moscow, did not compete at Jamaica's senior trials last month and will not be part of the national team at the worlds being held in London next month. Livermore, who has a personal best of 10.03 seconds in the 100m and 20.13 in the 200m, was also a member of Jamaica's gold-medal winning 4x200m team at the World Relays in 2015. REUTERS AKC 0406
