A release by the national federation stated that the 28 year old is “free to return to competition with immediate effect”.
“The National Association of Athletics Administrations (NAAA) can confirm that the Kelly-Ann Baptiste case has been resolved.”
“Further to the confidentiality provisions applicable to the proceedings, the Award of the CAS will not be made public. However, the NAAA can confirm that Baptiste is free to return to competition with immediate effect.”
