The Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association (JAAA) dropped three members it said was “inadvertently” named to represent to country at the London 2017 World Championships.

World Youth sprint hurdles champion Dejour Russell, 200m sprinter Kenroy Anderson and 400m hurdler Andre Clarke, all fourth place finishers at the Jamaica Trials, are the athletes taken off the team.

In a release very early Tuesday morning, sent by Director of Records Leroy Cooke, read: “Please note some alternate was inadvertently named to the team, those names have been removed. Sorry for the inconvenience caused.”

The London 2017 World Championships will be held between August 4 and 13 at Olympic Park.
