Jamaica could be facing a ban from major world-wide athletics, including the 2016 Olympics, if the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) deems them non-compliant with its drug-testing policies, according to Ben Rumsby of The Telegraph.
John Fahey, WADA's president, reportedly told The Telegraph that Jamaica's attempts to postpone an audit of their anti-doping program are "farcical," and that there will be an "appropriate" response.
David Howman, director general at WADA, was supposed to lead an audit of the Jamaican Anti-Doping Commission over allegations that it conducted no drug tests in the months leading up to the 2012 Olympics. In other words, JADCO essentially took a rain check for their investigation until 2014.
This doesn't sit well with Fahey, who was "infuriated," per the report. The cause for concern is legitimate, in that JADCO would have plenty of time to cover up whatever they need to cover up, in the scenario in which they have something that would actually need to be hidden.
The most notable athlete who would be affected by this is Usain Bolt, a sprinter who has won multiple gold medals at the Olympics. There is plenty of time before the Olympics come around, but it sounds like nothing short of total cooperation on behalf of JADCO will convince WADA not to take action at this point.
