Asafa Powell's drug hearing resumes today
THE hearing into Asafa Powell's positive drug test resumes today at the Jamaica Conference Centre downtown Kingston.
Former 100m world record holder Powell is facing the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission's (JADCO) disciplinary panel following a positive test for the banned stimulant Oxilofrine at the National Trials last June.
The hearing started in January.
Powell earlier blamed the positive test on a new brand of nutritional supplements given to him by physical trainer, Canadian Chris Xuereb.
Powell's training partner, sprinter Sherone Simpson also tested positive for the same substance and is facing a separate hearing.
