KINGSTON, Jamaica — Former 100 metre world record holder Asafa Powell and 2008 Olympic 100m silver medallist Sherone Simpson both got January trial dates for their doping hearing and lead attorney Kwame Gordon is exuding confidence that his clients will be vindicated.
Simpson’s date is set for January 7 to 8 while Powell will know his faith a week later, on the January 14 and 15. Both athletes failed drug tests at the National Senior Championships earlier this year.
