Simpson Tests Positive for Oxilofrine
According to a latest report, Sherone Simpson has been suspended as majority of tests conducted on the supplements she took included a banned substance.
Sherone Simpson is a track and field sprint athlete, competing internationally for Jamaica. She is a gold medalist in 4x100 m relay from the 2004 Olympics and silver medalist in 2005 World.
It has been revealed by sources that Sherone Simpson’s doping hearing was held on Thursday. Sources said the authorities concerned started the investigation on Simpson as well as former 100-metre world record-holder Asafa Powell, at June's Jamaican championships.
It has been revealed by the sources that the banned drug, oxilofrine, have been found in the supplements of both the players.
It has been claimed by the authorities concerned that in case they are found guilty both will be liable to face two-year bans.
Professor Wayne McLaughlin of Caribbean Toxicology, who is a witness for Simpson, told the three-member Jamaica Anti-Doping Disciplinary Panel that the two separate tests on a sealed bottle of ‘Epiphany D1’, a supplement she was taking, showed the presence of banned drug oxilofrine.
But it was also noted by McLaughlin that the drug was not labeled on the ingredients of Epiphany D1.
