Executive Director of the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission (JADCO), Carey Brown, says the agency is well on its way to introducing blood testing by the end of the 2014/15 fiscal year.

He says the commission is currently putting the necessary systems and protocols in place to meet this target.

Brown says several officers have been trained in preparation for this new sampling procedure.

In addition to the qualification of blood collection officers, several doping control officers and chaperones also received training.

This will bring the total number of doping control officers to 17 and chaperones to 50.
