BARBADOS has managed to avoid the scourge of the recent spate of positive drug tests by regional and international athletes.
Local track and field has been given the all-clear after tests conducted by the National Anti-Doping Commission (NADC) at last month’s National Athletics Championships did not reveal any adverse findings.
NADC chairman Dr Adrian Lorde revealed the findings in a press release upon receiving the results from a World Anti-Doping Agency accredited laboratory earlier this week.
“This indicates that our locally based and overseas trained athletes are adhering to our policy of clean sport and playing true,” Lorde said. (JM/PR)
