The International Bobsleigh and Skeleton Federation (IBSF), has confirmed that the Jamaica Winter Olympian who returned an adverse analytical finding for a banned substance in January, has requested that the "B" sample be tested.

This comes after emailed queries from RJR Sports on Friday when news broke that one female member of Jamaica's team returned the doping violation for the anabolic steroid clenbuterol.

According to the IBSF statement: "The athlete requested the opening of the B-sample. Once the result of the B-sample is made available to the IBSF, all documents will be reviewed by the IBSF’s Positive Case Committee and the next steps in the process will be taken,".

The IBSF also confirmed that "in January 2018 a member of the Jamaican Bobsleigh and Skeleton Federation was tested during an IBSF competition.

In the meantime, when contacted by RJR Sports, both ladies who represented Jamaica at the Winter Games, American-based pilot Jazmine Fenlator-Victorian via an emailed response said: "At this time all queries should be directed to the IBSF, while brakeswoman Carrie Russell said "no comment".
