MONTEGO BAY, Jamaica -- The Observer has been reliably informed that an associate of embattled Jamaican athletes Asafa Powell and Sherone Simpson was in the last two hours detained by the Italian police and his room searched at the MVP base in Italy.
Observer sources said that the trainer is being questioned based on the fact that both athletes tested positive for banned substances they ingested from supplements he provided, without any declaration that illegal stimulants might have been in them.
The Canadian recently started working with the athletes and was allegedly brought in to help Powell get over a rash of injuries he has suffered the last few seasons.
