The JAAA said the Caribbean island’s most successful female athlete had voluntarily withdrawn from competition and accepted the provisional suspension. Campbell-Brown, 31, who was the first Jamaican athlete, male or female to win a global 100 metres title, tested positive for a diuretic, which can be used to mask the use of performance-enhancing drugs, at the International Invitational World Challenge on 4 May .

The JAAA had not previously identified Campbell-Brown but said it would allow a disciplinary team to carry out a hearing as soon as it received notification of the B sample. Sources close to Jamaican athletics told Reuters that the banned drug was contained in a cream which Campbell-Brown was using to treat a leg injury and which she had declared on her doping control form. They said an import-ant factor was if the banned drug appeared on the label of the cream.
