This was disclosed by the JOA in a media release yesterday, regarding the adverse analytical finding returned by a Jamaican athlete, arising from the retesting of samples from the 2008 Beijing Olympcs.
According to the release, "The procedures outlined in the Anti-Doping Rules applicable to the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games and also the results management protocols require the JOA to “maintain confidentiality of the result of all Doping Control and the identities involved in the proceedings until it has been determined in a hearing.”
"Accordingly, the JOA will not be in a position to provide any further details on the matter until a hearing has determined the outcome of the issue and we have been officially advised."
However, yesterday, news media across the world, including the BBC and AFP named Carter as the offending athlete. This means that Jamaica's 2008 Beijing Olympic 4x100 metre relay gold medal could be in jeopardy, as Carter was among the quartet of Usain Bolt, Michael Frater and Asafa Powell on the team.
