The IAAF have said that the doping case involving suspended Jamaican sprint star Veronica Campbell-Brown appears to involve a "lesser" offence.

Jamaican officials said the three-time Olympic gold medallist tested positive for a banned diuretic at a meet in May. IAAF spokesman Nick Davies said "all evidence seems to point to this offence being a lesser one", meaning possible unintentional use of a banned substance.
