In a release from the Office of the Prime Minister, Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission (JADCO) said it wished to confirm that a three-member World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) team is expected in the island next week, October 28-29.

JADCO said the date of WADA's visit was mutually agreed on by the two following an invitation by the Prime Minister in August.

The WADA team will comprise of Director of Education Program and Development, Rob Koehler; Director of Standard Harmonization, Rune Andersen; and Manager of Program Development Kerwin Clarke.

The commission said the purpose of WADA's visit is to review the status of JADCO's operations, including: its drug testing programme, staffing, governance, education programme, and current cases of adverse analytical findings against some of our athletes.

In addition, JADCO said the various matters that have been raised in media reports would be fully ventilated and clarified "especially the misleading and inaccurate assertion that Jamaican athletes are at risk of being excluded from international meets".
