(Jamaica Observer) Commonwealth Games gold medallist Kaliese Spencer and World Championships relay bronze medallist Riker Hylton were yesterday identified by the Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association (JAAA) as the two Jamaican athletes who have violated the JADCO anti-doping rules that speak to “evading, refusing or failing to submit to sample collection”.

A release from the JAAA late yesterday afternoon said both athletes who were part of the Bert Cameron training group last year when the incident was alleged to have taken place, “have been referred to the Independent Anti-Doping Disciplinary Panel for an anti-doping violation”.

The allegations are that the athletes “have violated article 2.3” of the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission (JADCO) rules that say in effect they refused to give a sample when asked to by a JADCO collections officer.

The release from the JAAA also said: “We have been advised by JADCO that athletes Kaliese Spencer and Riker Hylton have been referred to the Independent Anti-Doping Disciplinary Panel for a hearing to be conducted in accordance with Article 8 of the JADCO Anti-doping Rules 2015,” and “As the matter is now before the disciplinary panel we will not be commenting any further on the matter.”
