Jamaican athletes Traves Smikle, Allison Randall and Demar Robinson will today face separate Jamaica Anti-Doping Disciplinary Panels at the Jamaica Conference Centre, for preliminary hearings into their respective cases, after testing positive for banned substances earlier this year.
The three are among five athletes who returned adverse analytical findings at the National Senior Championships in June, with star sprinters Asafa Powell and Sherone Simpson, scheduled to face their panels next week at the same location.
Smikle, Randall and Robinson are being represented by a team of attorneys led by Dr Lloyd Barnett, William Panton and Sabrina Cross.
Smikle will face a four-member pretrial panel comprising former director of public prosecutions and chairman of the Anti-Doping Disciplinary Panel, Kent Pantry; deputy DPP and second vice-chairman Jeremy Taylor; physician Ivor Crandon and Olympian Juliet Cuthbert-Flynn.
Pantry, Taylor, physician Dr Archie McDonald and FIFA referee Peter Prendergast will head the pretrial hearing for Robinson.
Randall will sit before a four-member panel, which includes Pantry, Taylor, Dr McDonald and Cuthbert-Flynn.
