Powell needs to wait till April 10

Jamaican sprint star Asafa Powell must wait until April 10 to learn if he can resume his career this year after submissions were completed on Wednesday in a doping hearing.

 
The three-member Jamaica Anti-Doping Disciplinary Panel heard final arguments from attorneys representing Powell and the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission (JADCO) and completed submissions in the case.

Powell, a former world 100-metre champion, and training partner Sherone Simpson tested positive for the banned stimulant oxilofrine after the 100M final at the Jamaican national championships last June 21.

Powell, who set a world record in the 100 metres in 2008 with a time of 9.74 seconds, blames Canadian physical therapist Chris Xuereb for the positive test.
