Doped runners

FOUR Jamaican runners have acknowledged using a banned substance and are awaiting disciplinary action. Yohan Blake, Lansford Spence, Marvin Anderson and Allodin Fothergill pleaded guilty at a special tribunal assembled by Jamaica's Sports Ministry last Wednesday. All four were kept out of last month's world championships in Berlin after doping tests revealed use of a banned stimulant. Tribunal chairman Ransford Langrin said on Friday the runners face a ban of up two years. A sentencing hearing was set for September 14.
