Keep sports clean, pleads Yearwood
KEITH YEARWOOD doesn’t want any further doping disgrace. For the sake of sport and country.
The Barbados Cycling Union president has finally broken his silence, having urged everyone in cycling to learn the World Anti-Doping code diligently and avoid bringing more shame to Barbados after top endurance rider Darren Matthews tested positive for an anabolic steroid.
“I heard Dr [Adrian] Lorde say a few weeks ago that more and more tests will be done in Barbados across the federations because Barbados does not want to be dragged into the mire and muck of doping, [so] this is a passionate plea to all of you. If you can’t read the word, then don’t take the medication,” said Yearwood while delivering his remarks at the sport’s awards ceremony on Friday.
