MONTEGO BAY, St James — The management team of Jamaican sprinter Veronica Campbell Brown has reiterated their stance that the nine-time World and Olympic Games individual medallist did not attempt to gain an unfair advantage after she failed a drug test at the Jamaica International Invitational in May this year.
In a release yesterday, two days after word came that she is to receive a public warning, a release from On-track Management (OTM), Campbell Brown's management company headed by Claude Bryan, said that out of "respect for protocol" they would wait for word from the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) after the Disciplinary Committee of the Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association made their recommendation after she returned a positive drug test earlier this year.
On Tuesday, the Disciplinary Committee of the JAAA recommended to the world's governing body, the IAAF, that following a four-day hearing, the 31-year-old Campbell Brown should be issued with a public warning after it was found that she did not use the substance to gain an unfair advantage during competition.
"Pursuant to our respect for the protocol, we intend to await the confirmation of the IAAF and the full acceptance that she took no substances to enhance her performance or serve as a masking agent," the release said in part.
It also went on to say: "In the meantime, Mrs Campbell Brown wishes to extend her thanks to her many supporters during this difficult and upsetting period. She looks forward to resuming her illustrious career and restoring the confidence of those who have maintained their trust in her integrity."
Campbell Brown was banned from competition in June after the B sample that was tested at the WADA-accredited laboratory in Canada confirmed the result of the first test.
She was denied the opportunity to defend her 200m title at the IAAF World Championships in Moscow, Russia in August as a result of the suspension.
CAMPBELL BROWN... looks forward
to resuming illustrious career
