NASSAU, Bahamas – The Bahamas athletics national body has said the positive test of a Bahamian athlete at the IAAF World Relays in May is under investigation by the Athletics Integrity Unit, according to the Nassau Guardian.
The BAAA is awaiting the result of the B sample. The athlete has not been named but was reportedly due to be on the squad for the World Championships, although eventually left out.
“To date, the process is still under investigation,” said BAAA President Rosamunde Carey. “The athlete in question has sent in a legal response, and the case is still open. The Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) is the arm of the IAAF that is directly responsible for disseminating information on athletes who have tested positive, and we’re still awaiting the results of the findings. We just have to trust the process.”
