Three high-ranking officials of the World Anti-Doping Agency have arrived in Jamaica to conduct their audit of the country`s anti-doping programmes after weeks of criticism following positive tests from several high-profile athletes.
The main aim next season for world and Olympic sprint champion Usain Bolt is to stay injury free as years of dominating the 100 and 200 metres have begun to take their toll on the tall Jamaican`s body.
Usain Bolt is undoubtedly the biggest name in world sport but unless someone emerges who is able to realistically challenge his hegemony then even the majestic Jamaican might begin to lose some of his stardust.
Move over Usain Bolt, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce stole your thunder. In 10.71 seconds of pure sprinting power on Monday the colourful and diminutive Jamaican outdid the sport`s great showman for razzle-dazzle.
After fellow Jamaican athletes failed crucial drug tests, six-time Olympic sprint champion Usain Bolt has assured that he wants to help restore faith in the sport, adding that he would work even harder to help the country and the sport.
Three of Jamaica’s top athletes including Asafa Powell have denied taking banned substances after the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission (JADCO) confirmed that five of the country’s athletes have tested positive for illegal substances.
