Jamaica blundered in catching doping athletes, the world doping police body said Tuesday, after high-profile athletes like former 100-meter sprint champion Asafa Powell tested positive for banned substances.
"It's quite clear" the Caribbean island's current testing is "not enough", said World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) president John Fahey.
"We've given them significant assistance in the past. They dropped the ball."
Seven Jamaican athletes, including Powell and two-time 200-meter Olympic champion Veronica Campbell-Brown, tested positive this year.
