Added 26 February 2019

LEVI CADOGAN, one of this country’s fastest men and a member of the Barbados team at the 2016 Rio Olympics, has been cleared to run in July.

 His appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in Lausanne, Switzerland, was partially upheld last week Wednesday when his drug sanction from athletic competition was reduced from 24 months to 20.

Queen’s Counsel Andrew Pilgrim, of Pilgrim & Associates, and Olivia Burnett, of Clarke Gittens & Farmer, represented Cadogan in his appeal to CAS.

The sole arbitrator found, among other things, that “it was not established that the anti-doping rule violation was intentional” and that Cadogan “ingested the furosemide by mistakenly ingesting a pill that contained the substance, thinking it was something else that he intended to ingest”. (MK)

Instead of an announcement via the Throne Speech, should Barbadians decide via referendum whether the country becomes a republic?
