Sprinter Jason Livermore Tests Positive For Banned Substance
Jamaican sprinter Jason Livermore now faces a four year ban after testing positive for a banned substance.
News of the doping violation came on Friday during a hearing at the Jamaica Conference Centre.
The revelation was reportedly made by Kent Gammon, chairman of a three-man Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission (JADCO) independent panel.
Gammon did not reveal the alleged banned substance, but stated that the 29-year-old Livermore, a Commonwealth Games 200-metres bronze medalist, had returned the positive result in an out-of-competition test on December 16.
According to Gammon, Livermore had violated Article 2.1 of JADCO’s anti-doping rules, which refers to the “Presence of a prohibited substance or its metabolites or markers in an athlete’s sample”.
Livermore represented Jamaica at the 2013 World Championships in Moscow. He has a personal best of 10.03 seconds in the 100m and 20.13 in the 200m.
