KINGSTON, Jamaica —
The four Jamaican athletes who failed drug tests at the National Championships in June were today given a three month ban and received a reprimand, this according to TrackAlerts.com.
The four, Yohan Blake, Marvin Anderson Lanceford Spence and Allodin Fothergill pleaded guilty to using the substance last month after being advised to do so, in an attempt to save time and expenses, reports said.
The four, along with Commonwealth Games champion Sheri Ann Brooks, who was cleared by the tribunal and awaits the decision of the International Association of Athletic Federations (IAAF) and the World Anti Doping Agency (WADA), missed the recently concluded World Championships in Berlin.
