Track and Field Analyst and Sports Journalist, Leighton Levy, says Sprinter Briana Williams, can claim innocence in the controversy surrounding her testing positive for a banned substance. 

The National junior record holder has returned a positive test for the banned diuretic Hydrochlorothiazide.

Williams who finished third in the women’s 100-metres at the national senior trials was expected to be part of Jamaica’s team to the 2019 I-Double-A-F World Championships, in Doha, Qatar.

Williams’ B sample has reportedly confirmed the presence of the substance.

Mr Levy says it’s clear the athlete was ill. 

He says the medication contained an unknown contaminant.
