The hearing for Hylton, who is facing a similar charge will take place at the same venue at 2:30pm on Thursday.

Refusing to provide a sample is one of 10 anti-doping rules violations currently listed under the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission's 2015 Rules. 

Both athletes have denied any wrongdoing.
