Levi back on track


Share post:

Levi Cadogan is aiming to make a stunning return to track and field after a two-year ban for doping.

The Bajan Olympic sprinter resumed training on Wednesday after he was cleared earlier this year following a two-year ban.

In 2017, the former Carifta Games silver medallist, who made his Olympic debut in Rio 2016, tested positive for the banned diuretic and masking pill furosemide.

The National Anti-Doping Commission (NADC) initially ruled for Cadogan to be sidelined for 24 months but he appealed to the court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) and his drug sanction was reduced to 20 because the sole arbitrator ruled that Cadogan had mistakenly ingested a pill that contained a banned substance. (AGB)
