Asafa Powell and Sherone Simpson Drug Bans Reduced

Olympic and World Championship medalists Asafa Powell and Sherone Simpson have had their 18 month drug bans reduced to six months by the Court of Arbitration for Sport, CAS.

The ruling comes six days after the sprinters’ appeal took place in New York between July 7 and 8.

Powell, who has run a record 81 sub-10s and Simpson, tested positive for the stimulant Oxilofrine on June 21, 2013.
