Jamaican sprinter Veronica Campbell-Brown has tested positive for a banned substance.

The 31-year-old sprint queen, who won the 200m and 45×100m relay golds at the 2004 Athens Olympics Games and retained her 200m title in 2008, now face a possible two-year suspension from Athletics.

A sample taken from the World 200m champion at the Jamaican Invitational on May 4 tested positive for a banned diuretic- viewed as a masking agent by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA.)

Diuretics, which promote the production of urine and are used to help high blood pressure, are banned by WADA because athletes use them to hide other performance-enhancing drugs.

At the London Games, Campbell-Brown won bronze in the 100m and was a member of Jamaica’s silver medal-winning sprint relay team.
