Sherone Simpson handed 18-month ban for failed drug test

BANNED: Sherone Simpson (PA)

SHERONE SIMPSON has been given an 18-month ban from athletics after the Jamaican sprinter failed a drugs test carried out last year.

The 29-year-old tested positive for a banned stimulant and in speaking about it in January, she claimed her Canadian trainer was to blame for the result.

Simpson was found to have been “negligent in all the circumstances” behind the failed test, the Jamaican anti-doping authorities said.

The ban will rule her out of the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow this summer.
