CAS blasts Ja­maica over sloppy anti-dop­ing pro­ce­dures

Daily Trust - - SPORT -

The Court of Ar­bi­tra­tion for Sport (CAS) blasted Ja­maican anti-dop­ing of­fi­cials for the mis­han­dling of a drug test by sprinter Veron­ica Camp­bell-Brown that led to a suc­cess­ful ap­peal of the three­time Olympic gold medal­ist’s two year ban.

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.
