Jamaican sprinter Veronica Campbell-Brown let off drug ban


Jamaican sprinter Veronica Campbell-Brown has been cleared to return to competition after being given a warning for the doping test she failed earlier this year.

The three-time Olympic gold medallist had been suspended since the test came to light in June but had denied being a drugs cheat.

The Jamaican Athletics Administrative Association has now reviewed the 31-year-old's case but chose not to impose a further ban.

Campbell-Brown has won seven Olympic medals in all, and been 100m and 200m world champion.
