In hot water
Bajan sports have been rocked again by another doping scandal.
Olympic sprinter Levi Cadogan could be sidelined for the upcoming Commonwealth and Central American And Caribbean Games as he faces a possible two-year ban after reportedly testing positive for the banned diuretic and masking agent furosemide.
The 22-year-old pro athlete declined to comment on the matter, but several sources confirmed the news after Cadogan publicly admitted to meeting with the National Anti-Doping Commission (NADC) on Monday night.
He subsequently hinted that he was quitting track and field altogether on social media, posting on Twitter: “Thank you, Barbados, I will miss the sport.”
He had a similar post on Instagram before that picture was subsequently removed from his page. (JM)
