400-metre runner Dominique Blake gets six-year ban
National 400-metre runner Dominique Blake has been banned from athletics for six years by the Disciplinary Panel of the Jamaica Anti-Doping Panel.
The panel handed down its sentence at 10:30 this morning at the Jamaica Conference Centre.
The 25-year-old Blake tested positive for Methylhexanamine at the National Senior Trials last June.
Blake was a member of Jamaica’s squad at the London 2012 Olympics having qualified as part of the 4x400-metre relay team but she did not run.
Last November, former Jamaican relay world champion Steve Mullings was banned for life from competing in athletics after a second doping offense.
