Brooks set free, but an appeal has been made

KINGSTON — Commonwealth Games 100 metres champion Sheri Ann Brooks has been cleared from doping charges, but reports are circulating that the decision has been appealed.

Brooks, one of five Jamaicans who returned positive tests at the Jamaica Championships in June, was the sole suspect at Wednesday’s hearing, which was the second of the week, following Monday’s premature first day.

"Brooks was the only one we met with today and we have made a ruling," Kent Gammon, chairman of Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission (JADCO) disciplinary panel, was quoted as saying on

"We heard the matter in respect to Sheri-Ann Brooks and decided that based on an irregularity with the testing of the B sample, we could not conclusively beyond a comfortable doubt determine the positive finding of the A sample."

But in the midst of rejoicing, the sprinter was greeted with the news that the judgment has been appealed.
