KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) _ Five Jamaican track and field athletes
have tested positive for doping, although a newspaper reports none
of the nation's premier sprinters is among the group.

Track's governing body confirmed the test results Friday but did
not identify the athletes or the drug.

Herb Elliott of the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission tells Radio

Jamaica that four men and one woman have been informed of the
results and will have an opportunity to contest them at a hearing.
Elliott said they tested positive at last month's national
championships and all of them were chosen for the world
championships team.

The Jamaica Observer, citing unidentified sources, first
reported the positive tests and said they did not include any of
the top sprinters.
