The Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission (JADCO), in a statement last night, said it viewed with 'deep concern utterances by various persons in the public sphere in their attempt to discredit the work of JADCO, its commissioners, the Government of Jamaica and the success of Jamaican athletes.'
JADCO said local athletes were tested in June 2013 at the National Senior Athletics Championships and none of those selected to be members of Team Jamaica to the recent IAAF World Championships returned adverse analytical findings.
In highlighting the fact that it has been doing its job, JADCO's statement said there has been a steady increase in the number of In-Competition and Out-of- Competition tests conducted locally.
JADCO said it carried out 504 In-competition and 372 Out-of-competition tests in the four-year period between May 2009 and July 2013. JADCO was formed in 2008.
NOTE: The full statement will be published in The Gleaner tomorrow.
