Udine, June 16 - Sprinter Asafa Powell, the former
100 metres world record holder, and fellow Jamaican athlete
Sherone Simpson are being probed by Italian prosecutors for
allegedly breaking Italy's anti-doping laws, along with a coach,
Christopher Xuereb.
Powell and Simpson were in northern Italy at a training
camp when it emerged on Sunday that they were among five
athletes who had failed drugs tests at Jamaican national
championships in June.
Italian police raided the hotel rooms of Powell, Simpson
and Xuereb, a Canadian, on Monday and seized foreign medicines
and diet supplements as a precautionary measure.
Doping is a criminal offence in Italy.
The fact that Powell, Simpson and Xuereb are being probed
does not necessarily mean charges will be presented against
them.
Powell and Simpson reportedly left Italy on Tuesday.
