Former ECU Sprinter Dropped From Jamaican Olympic Team

According to the Jamaica Observer newspaper, former East Carolina University sprinter Julien Dunkley is being fingered as testing positive for an unnamed performance enhancing substance at Jamaica's national championships in June. As a result Dunkley has been kicked off the Olympic Team.

President of the Jamaica Olympic Association (JOA), Mike Fennell, has not given a name, but said he had pulled the athlete from the 53-member list that was submitted only last week. Dunkley's name is the only one deleted from Jamaica's team posted on the JOA website.

Dunkley was scheduled to run the 100 meters and was selected as an alternate for the 400 meter relay. Dunkley attended ECU and won the NCAA indoor 60 meter title in 2003. The title was later stripped from him by the NCAA for an unknown reason.
