CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER
KINGSTON---Jamaica s leading dope control officer,
Dr Paul Wright, has confessed that on three occa-
sions he failed a medical examination which would
have qualified him to study for a bachelor of Med-
icine at the University of the West Indies.
Dr Wright s revelations came while he was being
cross examined in the anti-doping hearing of Olympic
silver medallist Sherone Simpson in Kingston on
He appeared as a witness for the Jamaica Anti-
Doping Commission (JADCO) in the hearing which
began on Tuesday.
"In fact, you were unsuccessful on three occasions,
is that correct?" asked Simpson s lawyer Kwame
Gordon. "Yes, sir," Dr Wright confirmed.
"And that exam is the exam that determined if
you are qualified to do a Bachelor of medicine (degree),
and you failed that exam on three occasions?"Gordon
"Yes, sir," Dr Wright replied again.
However Dr Wright informed the hearing that he
was able to train as a medical doctor and graduated
in 1976 with a diploma in sports medicine from
Leipzig University in East Germany.
"Why did you not do the MBBS? Is it because
you have failed on three occasions and could not do
it?" Gordon probed.
"Yes sir," said Dr Wright.
The hearing, which started on Tuesday, wrapped
up all the normal proceedings with the final two
witnesses, Dr Wright and Catty Rattray-Samuels, a
former JADCO director, taking the stand.
The hearing continues February 25 where both
Gordon and JADCO attorney Lackston Robinson are
expected to present their final submissions to the
three-member Jamaica Anti-Doping Disciplinary
Panel of Lennox Gayle, Dr Jephthah Ford and Peter
ROSA KHUTOR---Jamaica s bobsleigh team has
suffered another setback in their efforts to compete
in the Winter Olympic Games scheduled to begin
today in Sochi Russia.
Their luggage and equipment have gone missing
on their way to Moscow just days after they were
able to overcome a financial hurdle.
However, the athletes are insisting that, despite
the setback, they still intend to compete in the Games
which run until February 23.
"We had bad weather going into New York JFK
and had to go to Philadelphia first," Jamaican team
pilot Winston Watts told reporters.
"We flew Tuesday almost all day long but after
we came here we found out that our luggage got left
back there. We ve got nothing right now with us.
Helmets, spikes, lycra suites, everything is somewhere
between JFK and Sochi."
Watts, who inspected the course on Wednesday,
insisted his team will still make it to the first training
session which was scheduled for yesterday, even if
they have to borrow equipment.
"We ll make it tomorrow (today), I guarantee that.
It s still a learning process and we have a lot more
to learn. I ve walked around the course today learning
the curves. But when you re inside the bob there s
a completely different feeling."
Jamaica s two-man team has qualified for the Win-
ter Games after a 12-year absence.
"We re definitely not the Games favourites but we
came here to represent our country with pride," said
Watts, who also competed in the 1994, 1998 and
2002 Games. (CMC)
