Powell to know his fate in April

KINGSTON, Jamaica,  CMC- Jamaican sprinting star Asafa Powell will know his fate in early April when the Jamaica Anti-Doping Disciplinary Panel announces its decision on his doping violation case.

This announcement follows Wednesday’s closure of the athlete’s doping violation case at the Jamaica Conference Centre in downtown Kingston.

Powell’s attorney, Kwame Gordon has asked the three-member panel to consider a light penalty for his client.

However his counterpart, Lackston Robinson, who blamed Powell for gross negligence on his part, has recommended full two-year suspension, during final submissions.

A decision is expected to be announced on April 10.

The athlete has been facing the panel since January, after testing positive for the banned substance Oxilofrine at last year’s National Senior Championships at the National Stadium.
