Athletics: the appeals of Asafa Powell & Sherone Simspon partially upheld

Lausanne 14 July 2014 – The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has upheld in part the appeals filed by the Jamaican sprinters Asafa Powell and Sherone Simpson against the decisions of the Jamaica Anti-doping disciplinary panel imposing a suspension of 18 months on both of them, starting on 21 June 2013. The CAS decided to reduce their period of ineligibility to 6 months, which has been already served. The athletes were already free to compete since 18 June 2014 after the CAS had granted a stay of the decisions of the Jamaica Anti-doping Disciplinary Panel of 8 and 10 April 2014.

Both athletes filed appeals at CAS against their 18-month suspension. They put forward that the offense committed was minor because it was caused by contamination of the food supplement "Epiphany D1" by the banned substance Oxilofrine and requested that the suspensions be reduced to 3 months. They were heard at a hearing which took place on 7 and 8 July 2014 in New York.    

The full award with grounds will be issued by the CAS in a few weeks.
