Campbell-Brown dodges tough sanction

KINGSTON — Jamaican sprinter Veronica Campbell-Brown will avoid the standard two-year ban after testing positive for a reported banned diuretic in May, according to the Times of London.

The report supports previous remarks from the International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF) that Campbell-Brown’s case, which is ongoing, appears to involve a “lesser” offence.

The IAAF said that she did not use the substance, reported to be Lasix (furosemide), to cheat, despite its ability to act as a masking agent for performance-enhancing drugs.

Campbell-Brown, a seven-time Olympic medalist and two-time 200 metres champion, is under a provisional suspension by Jamaica’s athletics federation, whose disciplinary panel is handling the case.
