The Jamaica Observer is reporting that the five Jamaican sprinters who returned positive results for banned substance tests at the National Championships in June, are set for a hearing Friday evening.

According to reports, a nine member panel led by Kent Gammon, the chairman of the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission’s (JADCO) disciplinary committee, will seek to find the explanations for  the suspected results, so as to clear the air before the World Championships.

Gammon will be joined by eight others, Lenox Gayle, Jeffrey Mordecai, Dr Peter Charles, Juliet Cuthbert, Bert Cameron, Peter Prendergast, Dr Japheth Ford and Dr Winston Isles.

“We are going to start (the hearings) tomorrow at 5 pm,” Gammon disclosed.

“We’re starting tomorrow and we’ll see what the position is with the athletes tomorrow,” he added.

The five athletes, media outlets reported as, Sheri Ann Brooks, Yohan Blake, Marvin Anderson, Allodin Fothergill and Lansford Spence, reportedly tested positive for methylxanthine, a type of bronchodilator commonly used in the treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
