The World Anti-Doping Agency WADA has declared that it is satisfied with the way things are progressing with Jamaica at the moment.
WADA Director General David Howman yesterday revealed that WADA is improving relations with Jamaica following recent revelations that its testing program collapsed before the 2012 London Olympics, where the Jamaican sprinters dominated the track.
Howman has been quoted as saying Jamaica has followed through on promises made by Sports Minister Natalie Neita-Headley at a WADA conference in Johannesburg two weeks ago adding that so far, Jamaica has done everything the minister told him the country would do.
Howman noted that the resignations of all 12 members of the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission will take effect at the end of the year and four staff are set to be hired to bolster a revamped testing program.
Howman further added that Jamaica’s government had also promised funding for the national agency, which could build links with Canadian Anti-Doping officials as mentors.
In closing Howman declared that WADA was never out to get Jamaica, but was just trying to make sure the country get its program back on track.
