KINGSTON — The Five Jamaican athletes involved in doping reports at the national championships in June, were on Monday cleared after the country’s anti-doping panel failed to determine whether the banned substance was on the prohibited list.

The athletes, initially identified as Sheri-Ann Brooks, Yohan Blake, Marvin Anderson, Allodin Fothergill and Lansford Spence, reportedly returned positive tests for the stimulant methylhexanamine.

However, Kent Gammon, chairman of the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission’s disciplinary committee, said it was unable to prove they had violated any doping policy.

"Therefore, we have not found any of the athletes in violation of the (anti-doping) code," Gammon said.

The five are now safe to join their fellow teammate in Berlin for the World Championships, which start this week, even though the track and field’s governing body and organizer of the worlds – International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF), could review the ruling.
