An expedited hearing date is expected to be sought for IAAF Double World under 20 gold medal winner Brianna Williams who has returned a positive test for the diuretic hydro-chloro-thia-zide.
This as she hopes to retain her place on Jamaica’s team to the i-double-a-f world championships in Doha Qatar next month and with the team to be submitted by next Friday.
The young Jamaican star athlete had her “a” sample returning a positive test at the national trials in June where she ended 3rd in the senior 100 metres final in a spectacular 10.94 seconds, behind Elaine Thompson and shelly-Ann Fraser Pryce.
Her B’ sample has also tested positive.
The 17-year-old Williams faces a maximum 4 years ban for a first offence under the world anti-doping agency (WADA) rules.
Williams is reported to have taken an over-the-counter cold medicine during the national trials and had declared it on her doping control form.
