Powell, Simpson have doping hearing set for January
Jamaica: Former world 100 metres record holder Asafa Powell and Olympic 4x100 relay silver medallist Sherone Simpson will appear before a disciplinary panel of the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission in January.

The two sprinters, who were among five Jamaicans to test positive at their country`s national championships last June, were given the dates on Friday during a preliminary hearing at the Jamaica Conference Center in Kingston.

Simpson will face the panel January 7-8 while Powell will appear from January 14-15 in an attempt to clear their names.
