Jamaican hurdler Ronald Levy faces doping ban after B-sample confirms positive test

Jamaican Ronald Levy

The B-sample of Jamaican Olympic 110m hurdles bronze medallist Ronald Levy has returned positive for two banned drugs.
 
The drugs were initially found in his A-sample by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) lab in Canada from an out of competition test last month.
 
He now faces a hearing and the possibility of a four-year ban, which could rule him out of next summer's Paris Olympics as well as the two next World Athletic Championships in 2025 and 2027.
 
According to Radio Jamaica Sports sources, the two banned substances found in Levy's sample are GW501516-Sulfoxide and GW501516-Sulfone.
 
Earlier this month, Levy, via his Instagram page, confirmed being notified of the adverse finding on November 3, but did not reveal the name of drugs
