JADCO 2015 JADCO vs Andre Russell

In October 2015 the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission (JADCO) has reported an anti-doping rule violation against the cricket player Andre Russell for 3 Whereabouts filing failures within a 12 month period. After notification the Athlete filed a statement in his defence and he was heard for the Jamaica Anti-Doping Disciplinary Panel.

The Athlete stated that he had not received information from JADCO about whereabouts and the use of the ADAMS system and neither had the cricket organsations conducted workshops or training sessions in this matter. He was assisted by updating his whereabouts information and due to his hectic cricket schedule he had delegated the filing of his whereabouts to his agent.

The Panel finds that the Athlete acted without intention to avoid being available for testing and that there was clearly some intervention and willingness to do something to have the situation rectified, though unsuccessfully to the critical moment.

The Panel concludes that the evidence establish the Athlete’s 3 Whereabouts filing failures as anti-doping violation and decides on 31 January 2017 to impose a 12 month period of ineligibility on the Athlete starting on the date of the decision.
