Doping claims put damper on Jamaican running

Country's anti-doping commission says it will run at least 300 drug tests a year, despite only 13 since November.

    The new executive director of the Jamaican Anti-Doping Commission (JADCO) has said the organisation will meet its commitment to carry out at least 300 tests annually.

    Six Jamaicans failed drug tests last year and JADCO has confirmed just two tests were carried out in December and only 11 in November.

    World and Olympic champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce was so angry over the management of the crisis by the commission that she threatened to go on strike.
