Bermuda Permit Athlete Cleared in Jamaica

Jamaican 400 metres sprinter Riker Hylton who competed in the Bermuda Area Permit meet 2016 has been cleared of any wrongdoing after being accused of deliberately missing a drugs test.

Hylton, winner of a 4x400 metres Relay Bronze Medal at the 2011 World Championships in Daegu, claimed that he had been notified of his provisional suspension after allegedly declining to provide a sample during testing last April.

He was accused of violating Article 2.3 of the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission (JADCO) Anti-doping Rules 2015 relating to "evading, refusing or failing to submit to sample collection".

But the 28-year-old insisted that he had not been properly informed about the test and only discovered anything about it after leaving the stadium.

A JADCO Disciplinary Panel upheld the decision and ruled that he had not violated any rules.
