On a consideration of all the facts and evidence the independence Anti-Doping Panel finds as follows:
The Independent Anti-Doping Disciplinary Panel is unanimously persuaded to the standard of proof on the evidence presented that the athlete, Miss Briana Williams, was in breach of article 2.1 of the 2015 Anti-Doping Rules as she had in her body a specified substance namely, ”Hydrochlorothiazide.”
The IADP finds that the athlete has established no significant fault or negligence as she was given tablets by her guardian and had no intention to cheat in her In-Competition sprint event on the 21st June 2019. The IADP was referred to article 10.5.1.1 of the Anti-Doping in Sport Rules and this is relied on in its findings.
In the circumstances of this case the athlete is reprimanded without any period of ineligibility.
The IADP recommends that the athlete undergoes another education programme on Anti-Doping in Sport Rules as soon as JADCO carries out same.
