Briana Williams reprimanded, free to compete

By September 26, 2019

Jamaican teen star Briana Williams has been issued a reprimand without any period of ineligibility by the independent anti-doping disciplinary panel.

The ruling was handed down today at about 12:24 pm Jamaica time.

The panel, however, recommends that the World U18 100m and 200m champion undergo another education programme of the anti-doping rules the next time the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission carries out another workshop.

Williams, 17, tested positive for the diuretic hydrochlorothiazide at the Jamaica National Championships in June after she finished third in the 100m in what was a World U18 record of 10.94s.

The disciplinary hearing began on Monday, September 23 and concluded on Tuesday, September 24, without the panel announcing when they will issue a ruling on whether Williams would face any sanction.
