KINGSTON, (Reuters) – Jamaica’s Olympic and world 100 metres champion Shelly-Ann Fraser has tested positive, her track club (MVP) president Bruce James said. Fraser, 23, was due to run at the Diamond League meeting in Lausanne, Switzerland yesterday but withdrew before the start of the event.
James said Fraser had tested positive at the Diamond League meet in Shanghai on May 23 after taking medication to treat “toothache”.
“It is a minor doping violation,” he said.
“We have nothing to hide and as a result of this we have decided to go public and admit that she had a positive result,” James told Reuters.
