KINGSTON, Jamaica -- Backup doping tests have come back positive for former 100-meter world record-holder Asafa Powell, teammate Sherone Simpson and three other island athletes. The Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission said the athletes second samples were tested at a Montreal lab accredited by the World Anti-Doping Agency. It says all five athletes have been notified and the findings will be passed on to the Jamaican Anti-Doping Disciplinary Panel so hearings can be scheduled. Paul Doyle, the agent for Powell and Simpson, did not immediately respond to a Friday email seeking comment. The athletes and their agent have focused on a new physical trainer, Christopher Xuereb of Canada, saying supplements he provided caused the positive tests. However, Xuereb has said he didnt give the sprinters performance-enhancing drugs and suggested he was a scapegoat. Powell and Simpson tested positive for the banned stimulant oxilofrone at Jamaicas national championships in June. Discus throwers Allison Randall and Travis Smikle, along with a junior athlete, also tested positive for prohibited substances at the same meet. Powell was the last man to hold the 100-meter world record before teammate Usain Bolt broke it in 2008. He also helped the island win the 400-meter relay gold at the 2008 Olympics. Simpson won Olympic gold in the womens 400 relay in 2004 and silver in 2012, along with silver in the 100 in 2008. The two Jamaican sprinting stars and trainer Xuereb were formally placed under criminal investigation in Italy following a hotel raid in July the northern resort town of Lignano Sabbidadora, where the Jamaicans have been training for years. This week, an Italian prosecutor said their criminal doping investigation has been delayed because they have been unable to contact the athletes to ask whether they wish to observe the testing of substances sequestered during the police raid. Meanwhile, a Jamaican disciplinary panel is deliberating a verdict after a four-day closed-door hearing on a positive doping test by another marquee sprinter, three-time Olympic gold medallist Veronica Campbell-Brown. The panel includes a former judge, a former senior military official and the head of the islands medical association. One of Campbell-Browns lawyers representing her at the hearing was P.J. Patterson, a former prime minister who led Jamaica from 1992-2006 and remains a highly influential figure on the island. The 31-year-old champion sprinter is the 2004 and 2008 Olympic winner in the 200. She also won gold in the 4x100 relay at the 2004 Athens Games. In London, she won bronze in the 100 and silver as part of the 4x100 relay team. She was suspended from competition in June after testing positive for a banned diuretic at a meet in May in Jamaica, according to a top Jamaican anti-doping official. But the doping case involving Campbell-Brown appears to involve a "lesser" offence of unintentional use of a banned substance, IAAF spokesman Nick Davies told The Associated Press in June. The doping positives of three of the islands sprinting stars have staggered many in Jamaica, where track athletes are beloved and global domination in sprinting is a huge source of national pride. In recent days, Renee Anne Shirley, the former executive of the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission, has made waves in Jamaica after revealing a number of "troubling" problems during her brief tenure as the top official. She has disclosed that the commission did not have the staff to carry out rigorous anti-doping programs and just one out-of-competition test was done between February 2012 and the start of the London Olympics five months later. The anti-doping commission has responded defensively, saying it has viewed with "deep concern the utterances by various persons in the public sphere in their attempt to discredit the work of JADCO, its commissioners, the government of Jamaica and the success of Jamaican athletes." Since starting testing in May 2009, JADCO says it has conducted 876 tests - 504 in-competition and 272 out-of-competition. Andrew Wylie Jersey . Browns advice worked. Irving scored 20 points, including seven in the fourth quarter, and Cleveland defeated the Los Angeles Clippers 88-82 Saturday night. Irving made his first shot of the night on a layup a little over three minutes into the game. DeAnthony Thomas Jersey . Mesoraco hurt his hamstring while scoring from second in Friday nights 5-4 loss at Atlanta. Chapman was hit by a line drive during an exhibition game on March 19, breaking his nose and a bone above his left eye. The left-hander looked strong while throwing 43 pitches in batting practice before Saturday nights game against the Braves. http://www.cheapchiefsjerseysonline.com/?tag=austin-reiter-jersey-online. There is no argument that the line of Pacioretty, David Desharnais and Thomas Vanek was one of the hottest in the NHL leading into the post-season, and they did combine for three goals and seven points, but it was the depth of all four lines that helped propel Montreal. Anthony Sherman Jersey . A-Rod is also disqualified from any post-season play. So at the tender age of 38, he will miss all of next season. As a result of missing the coming season, hes also out $25 million (which coincidentally is my hourly rate). Tyreek Hill Jersey . But its also a smart game. Theres more to the Kings than banging bodies. They take a toll mentally on their opponents.PHILADELPHIA -- The NFL agreed Wednesday to remove a US$675 million cap on damages from thousands of concussion-related claims after a federal judge questioned whether there would be enough money to cover as many as 20,000 retired players. A revised settlement agreement filed in federal court in Philadelphia also eliminates a provision that barred anyone who gets concussion damages from the NFL from suing the NCAA or other amateur football leagues. In January, U.S. District Judge Anita Brody had denied preliminary approval of the deal because she worried the money could run out sooner than expected. The settlement, negotiated over several months, is designed to last at least 65 years and cover retired players who develop Lou Gehrigs disease, dementia or other neurological problems believed to be caused by concussions suffered during their pro careers. More than 4,500 former players have filed suit, some accusing the league of fraud for its handling of concussions. They include former Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Dorsett and Super Bowl-winning Chicago Bears quarterback Jim McMahon, who suffers from dementia. "This agreement will give retired players and their families immediate help if they suffer from a qualifying neurocognitive illness, and provide peace of mind to those who fear they may develop a condition in the future," plaintiffs lawyers Christopher Seeger and SSol Weiss said in a statement.dddddddddddd The original settlement included $675 million for compensatory claims for players with neurological symptoms, $75 million for baseline testing and $10 million for medical research and education. The revised settlement eliminates the cap on overall damage claims but retains the payout formula for individual retirees. A young retiree with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gehrigs disease, would receive $5 million, a 50-year-old with Alzheimers disease would get $1.6 million, and an 80-year-old with early dementia would get $25,000. Even with the cap removed, both sides said they believe the NFL will spend no more than about $675 million to ex-players. Brody will decide later whether to accept the new settlement terms. Critics of the deal have said the league, with annual revenues topping $9 billion, was getting off lightly. Lawyers for the plaintiffs said the settlement avoids the risk of a protracted legal battle. The proposal does not include an admission from the NFL that it hid information from players about head injuries. "Todays agreement reaffirms the NFLs commitment to provide help to those retired players and their families who are in need, and to do so without the delay, expense and emotional cost associated with protracted litigation," NFL Senior Vice-President Anastasia Danias said in a statement.
