Blake, Cunningham to face JADCO tomorrow
NATIONAL quarter-miler Dominique Blake and 800m runner Ricardo Cunningham are due to face the Jamaica Anti-Doping Disciplinary Committee (JADCO) tomorrow over alleged doping violations.
Meanwhile Blake, who was part of the Olympic team in London and later revealed to have tested positive for a banned substance at the National Senior Championships in June, has been omitted from the official celebrations to mark the country's performances this summer.
Blake was part of the women's 4x400m relay pool but was not chosen to run. The team eventually earned a bronze medal.
Minister with responsibility for Sport, Natalie Neita-Headley, told the Jamaica Observer it was a discretionary move to leave Blake out.
"Miss Blake, while the investigations are going on, we would abstain from her involvement in the process at this time allowing the investigations to take place," Neita-Headley said.
