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.
