LAUSANNE – Trinidad and Tobago’s sprinter Kelly-Ann Baptiste is now free to return to competition.

According to reports coming out of Trinidad and Tobago, Baptiste’s suspension was lifted following an appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

A release by the national federation stated that the 28 year old is “free to return to competition with immediate effect”.

“The National Association of Athletics Administrations (NAAA) can confirm that the Kelly-Ann Baptiste case has been resolved.”

“Further to the confidentiality provisions applicable to the proceedings, the Award of the CAS will not be made public. However, the NAAA can confirm that Baptiste is free to return to competition with immediate effect.”

Meanwhile, her compatriot Semoy Hackett will also return to action this season, as her doping ban ends on April 30.
