IAAF to rule on Jamaican doping case before start of world championships

BERLIN — The world athletics federation says it will rule on the doping cases involving five Jamaican athletes before Saturday's opening of the world championships. The IAAF had been waiting for documents all week after the five were cleared by a a disciplinary panel appointed by the island's sports minister. The panel found there wasn't enough evidence for substance abuse.
The IAAF could provisionally suspend the five if it rules that the doping infractions were serious enough. The runners have been identified as Yohan Blake, Sheri-Ann Brooks, Allodin Fothergill, Lansford Spence and Marvin Anderson.
The ruling could affect the Jamaican sprint relay teams competing at the world championships.
