KINGSTON, Jamaica -- Jamaican discus thrower Allison Randall has been suspended for two years by the Jamaica Anti Doping Commission (JADCO) and will not be eligible to compete until June 21, 2015.
Her period of suspension is calculated from the time she returned a positive test for a banned diuretic at the National Trials in June 2013.
The 25-year-old Randall, who holds the Jamaican discus record with a distance of 61.21 metres, is one of eight Jamaicans who tested positive for banned substances last year.
The American-based Randall was represented by attorney-at-law Dr Lloyd Barnett.
Randall faced a four-member panel chaired by former Director of Public Prosecutions, Kent Pantry.
