One of Jamaica’s most recognizable athletes, Veronica Campbell-Brown has tested positive for the presence of a banned substance.
The print star’s A sample tested positive for a diuretic, which acts as a masking agent, at the Jamaica Invitational meet on May 4, The Gleaner reported on Friday. Diuretics promote excessive release of fluids from the body primarily through urination, decreasing the ability to detect performance enhancement drugs.
The B sample result was confirmed on Friday, the newspaper also reported.
The International Association of Athletic Federations (IAAF) is expected to rule on the finding by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) early next week.
Campbell-Brown was signed as one of the headliners for the EITC, scheduled for June 29 at Foote Field.
