After initial tests came back positive, all five athletes are cleared to run at world championships next week.

All five Jamaican sprinters that were told they tested positive for a banned substance during the Jamaican championships, have been cleared by the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission. The JADC says that they are unable to prove any violations of the drug policy had occured. The five athletes who are now clear to run at the Berlin world championships are Yohan Blake, Sheri-Ann Brooks, Allodin Fothergill, Lansford Spence and Marvin Anderson. The IAAF can still hold the athletes out of the championship meeting if they find evidence that the athletes took an illegal substance at the Jamaican championships.
