Jamaica vows to improve drug testing in country

  • Sports minister of Jamaica Natalie Neita-Headley said the Jamaican Anti-Doping Commission (Jadco) met with with the World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada) for two days and the meeting was "constructive."

    Former executive Renee Anne claimed the London Olympic testing was not up to the mark. Audit by Wada is going to be made public only after their scheduled conference in Johannesburg in November. 

    "They had very fruitful discussions with our team and have committed to working in closer partnership with Jadco to make it not only world class but also best in class," Neita-Headley said. "There is no doubt that we have done some things well but, like with all other growing organizations, Jadco is only five years young and there are areas that we are seeking to improve."

    The agency has appointed a new executive director and is also increasing its staff.
