The Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association confirmed Tuesday that a case is “currently ongoing” Olympic sprinter Veronica Campbell-Brown following reports that she had tested positive for a banned substance.

The suspension of Campbell-Brown, a three-time Olympic gold medalist, awaits the outcome of a disciplinary panel the association said would hear the case.

“We also wish to point out that Mrs Veronica Campbell-Brown voluntarily withdrew herself from competition and accepted the provisional suspension,” JAAA President Dr Warren Blake said in a statement. “Further statements by us will await the outcome of this case.”

The test reportedly came during the Jamaica Invitational in Kingston in early May.
