Jamaican sprinter Asafa Powell will realise what ban, if any, he is to serve for a failed drugs test last year.
The 31-year-old former 100m world record holder, tested positive for banned stimulant oxilofrine in June 2013 and faces up to a two year ban.
His legal team, on Wednesday, appealed for leniency for what is a first offence in a final submission made in Kingston.
Powell’s training partner Sherone Simpson, who failed a test at the same event, will receive her verdict on 8 April.
Both Powell and Simpson, who were provisionally suspended in July, argued for the minimum suspension, on the grounds of minimal fault.
The duo were among five Jamaicans to test positive at the Jamaican National Championships in June of last year.
However, Jamaica’s Anti-Doping Commission lawyer argued that they were negligent and had blindly trusted the physical trainer whom both blame for their positive tests.
The trainer – Chris Xuereb – denies supplying a supplement known as Epiphany D1, which contains the banned substance.
The court heard that Xuereb was also administering Powell’s anti-inflammatory injections and Vitamin B12, despite not being certified as a doctor, massage therapist, chiropractor or physiotherapist during an earlier hearing in January- adjourned until this month after it overran.
Powell set a world record of 9.74 seconds in 2007 and won gold in the men’s 4 x 100m relay at the Beijing Olympics in 2008.
