Jamaica’s rising star Briana Williams will face the Independent Anti-Doping Disciplinary Panel on Tuesday (10 Sept).

Williams, who tested positive for a banned substance at Jamaica Trials in June, is hoping to be cleared in time for the Doha 2019 World Championships.

The Independent Anti-Doping Disciplinary Panel, in a release, said it “will convene a preliminary hearing in the matter of the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission (JADCO) versus Briana Williams on Tuesday 10 Sept 2019.”

“The hearing which will be held the Jamaica Pegasus starts at 10:00 a.m.

“It will be held in camera, but Chairman Mr Kent Gammon, is willing to provide a statement following the hearing,” said the release.

  1. There are so many things about this matter that bother me. She is a minor, she exhibited clear flu-like symptoms at the Jamaica Trials and she disclosed she was taking OTC meds for flu. This was public knowledge. She should get a therapeutic use exemption (TUE) at the very least. The whole idea of contaminated supplements or contaminated medications is even more of a grey area. How can an athlete be sure when they take legitimate/allowed substance A, it is not contaminated with WADA-list substance B?

  2. @Briana Williams boo just gwan listen some real music yah. It’s just an hurdle for you to jump over which you are going to! I’m standing with you in good and bad times.

  3. I hope she will be fully exonerated and be included in the team to Doha. She worked very hard to make the team and should not be penalized for what is obviously an unintentional mistake.

  4. Lord take care of this situation you see that shes innocent Cover guide n protect our athletes Stay strong Brianna We love you no matter what All things are possible through jesus christ our lord and saviour
