Could we be seeing Ramone Mckenzie filling in a spot?

I guess they thought they could get away with it!! They been mislead about Jamaica's Testing policy of it being non-existance. JAAA should put in their own Rule and BANNISH them for life from representing JA.

RamGoat...it has to be some fool who think that would be their only way of making the Jamaican team, and thought that they could get away with it.

Bolt and Asafa don't need to take that.


I can't wait to see. A LIFE BAN SHOULD BE IMPOSED by JAAA from REPRESENTING JAMAICA...WHOEVER THEY ARE.

Its good that the testing was done in JA, i thought it was on the euro circuits, since on the news they said recent track meets.

It could be anyone, from a 400m runner to a hurdler to a jumper. Dont forget it can apply to the women too.

I guess we need a list of the Berlin team to add to the anxiety.

Yeah i am looking at it that way too. Look on our other medium distant events too.
and the 200m especially.
When will they be releasing the news? Its seems TVJ has exclusive news, i can't find it anywhere online.

I have a strong feeling it is two internationally trained athletes. I have a suspicion about one person. I am about to check to see if he will be running in London.

if this is true, it sucks.

if athletes were doping, very happy they have been caught.

i just don't understand why some athletes and coaches persist with the stupidity and career suicide of doping.

it taints everyone else.

I am utterly confident that Bolt and Asafa are 100% clean. These guys are too big and have too much integrity.

But some dumb ass lesser known athlete has to go and put mud on everyone's faces.

gawd, some people don't learn and they have no regard for the impact their actions have on others.

if this turns out to be true, and these athletes were on the team and well known in Jamaica, I would fear for their lives. Jamaicans won't take kindly to this kind of nonsense anymore.

who knows, maybe it's a weed offense. don't care about that so much. it's just dumb and embarrassing, but it's no moral offense.

errggggg!

If this all turns out to be just trolling (nothing moving on the wires or in either of the big Kingston papers yet), there will be bans imposed, believe you me.

I don't see Frater in London meet.

I'm thinking the British decide to put their own Athlete in the race.


The intrigue. Do anyone agree that JAAA should start Life Ban of positive cheats.

Its true, it came on the 7 o clock news on TVJ.

I would believe they were overseas based runners. They cannot return to the Island until people forget who they are. :?

If it's on the news in Jamaica it's true. JAAA did the same thing last year when the got the result...they give the info out.

Will take few more days for the names of the culprits to be name public.

That's how serious Jamaicans are about these things. These culprits don't understand it affects everyone.

Yohan...always look bigger than his peers. The last time a see a picture of Yohan....he still has chicken legs. I would think PEDS bulk up your whole body...especially your legs and arms.

eh, not really. that is, this article is old and I gaurantee you that Bolt would not be foolish enough to light up a j anytime during the season, or at all.

maybe the drug in question is weed, however. maybe it can be chaulked up to a night out of partying, where the stuff was passing around.

the shame is that this is such a minor affair. just a bloody embarrassment to the athletes and the federation.

Whether you get a feeling or not, and whether you turn out to be correct or not, you should not be speculating names without evidence. We will find out in due time who it is.

I don't think its weed, trials were a ways off. Maybe weed would would have given a quicker result.
Whoever it is they are really stupid. Maybe some one told them whatever they were taking was undetectable or not banned. I have a feeling its Blake, he is young enough to be naive to do this, I could be wrong.

BY THE WAY, YOUR TOPIC HEADLINE SAYS PEDs, not BANNED SUBSTANCES, WHICH IS WHAT THE RADIO ARTICLE SAID.

BIG, BIG DIFFERENCE in moral and political implications BETWEEN SOMEBODY TESTING POSITIVE FOR WEED VERSUS A PED.

disregard this post about Blake. The perpetrator is definitely on the 200m or 400m, man or woman.
