Embattled president of the Barbados Amateur Bodybuilding & Fitness Federation (BABBFF), Manasseh King, says he never refused an official request for drug testing to be conducted at the St Michael Classic in July.
“I have never opposed drug testing. I was president when the bodybuilding federation became one of the first national federations to sign onto the anti-doping code but there is a decent way of doing it,” he said.
King has been provisionally suspended by the National Anti-Doping Committee (NADC) for a breach of its regulations.
In a letter despatched to the NADC on July 27, King denied the charge of complicity levelled against him. (MK)
