Former 100-metre world record holder and Olympic gold medallist Asafa Powell has been banned for 18 months for consuming the banned substance oxilofrine. The sentence was handed down today by JADCO, who gave fellow Jamaican sprinter Sherone Simpson a similar ban on Tuesday. Both Powell and Simpson won’t be able to return to the track until December this year.
