The anti-doping hearing to look into whether West Indies allrounder Andre Russell missed three dope tests between January and July last year will resume on Thursday in Kingston. Cheap Air Max 97 Wholesale . The hearing is significant because an athlete can be suspended for up to two years under the World Anti-Doping Agency code if he misses three tests in a year, which amount to a failed dope test.On Thursday, an independent three-member anti-doping disciplinary tribunal will hear the final written submissions made by both parties - Russell and the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission (JADCO) - after which it is likely to determine whether Russell was guilty of violating WADAs whereabouts clause.Russell, a popular player in various domestic Twenty20 competitions around the world, skipped the T20I series against Pakistan and admitted that the allegations have been stressing and depressing.The following details trace the case from its beginning.Who has accused Russell of the breach? In March this year, JADCO alleged that Russell had failed to file his whereabouts three times between January and July 2015, citing the dates of January 1, July 1 and July 25.What is Russell in breach of? JADCOs main claim is that Russell was negligent in filing his whereabouts. Its executive director, Carey Brown, told the tribunal that workshops had been organised between 2014-16 where athletes, including cricketers, were educated on the WADA guidelines and details of filing of the whereabouts clause. He also said that Russell had been contacted via email, on phone and letters by JADCO to remind him about filing his whereabouts on the three occasions he missed the tests.Tajae Smith, one of the JADCO officials, said that he had guided Judith Lue, a travel consultant authorised by Russell to help him with his visas and such, to file the whereabouts at least twice. Lue had told the tribunal that she had filed the whereabouts for Russell on JADCOs website twice last year with Smiths help: on February 17 and April 1.Nadia Vassell, the whereabouts officer and director of technical services at JADCO, who was also the first witness, told Russells legal counsel, Patrick Forster, that a first reminder was sent through a letter on July 6, 2015. An extension was given to Russell to file his whereabouts by July 13, 2015. On July 20, Vassell sent another email to Russell asking him to file his whereabouts by July 24.What was Russells defence? While deposing before the tribunal, Russell pointed out that he had authorised Smith and his agent Will Quinn to take care of the process since he was not properly trained to carry out the whereabouts filing on his own. He said the reason behind someone else filing it was because of his unavailability due to his cricket commitments.At a hearing on July 20 last year, Forster said that JADCOs Vassell failed to copy her response to an e-mail from Quinn sighting an extension for Russell to file his whereabouts for the third test scheduled for July 25, 2015. Vassell admitted she had not sent the e-mail to Russell. Since two the alleged filing failures occurred last July, Forster said he was trying to establish that procedural breaches by JADCO could mean there was actually just one violation on Russells behalf.Russell admitted that he understood the notice sent to him last March informing him about this first filing failure on January 1. But the West Indies allrounder said he did not understand the language in the second notice which was on the second filing failure on July 1. However Lackston Robinson, JADCOs counsel, argued the language in both notices was the same.Russell also pointed out that he received a fresh communique from JADCO on September 19, on his third failed test that was scheduled for July 25 last year. Russell said he was confused since he had thought Quinn had sorted the matter with JADCO over the extension. But Robinson countered saying Russell would have known about the exchanges between Quinn and JADCO as he was also copied on the email.What happens now? On Thursday, the tribunal will hear the final written submissions by both parties. Counsels representing Russell and JADCO were expected to file their written submissions by November 7.Who sits on the independent panel? Hugh Faulkner is the chairman of the three-member panel which includes Dr Marjorie Vassell and Dixeth Palmer, a former Jamaica cricketer.

Air Max 97 China Wholesale . -- Its been a long road back for Sean Bergenheim. http://www.airmax97wholesale.com/ . The catch: It needs a lot of money, and it needs it fast. EUGENE, Ore. -- This wasnt a world record for Ashton Eaton. Just a runaway win and another trip to the Olympics.Not bad for a decathlete dealing with an injury.On a tender hamstring and a quadriceps thats given him problems in recent weeks, the defending Olympic champion scored 8,750 points to beat Jeremy Taiwo by 325 at the U.S. Track and Field Trials on Sunday night. Thats well off Eatons world record of 9,045, set at the world championships last summer in Beijing.But consider this: No one in the decathlete field for the Rio Olympics has a personal-best that matches Eatons mark from the trials.Hes simply in a different stratosphere these days. The only person who can compete against him is, well, a computerized model of himself.No, really.Its almost like I make a digital version of myself, try to compete against that, Eaton explained. I had this little mini sub-goal of trying to score 9,000 every decathlon. It would be cool never to go back to (8,000).At the last Olympic trials, also at Hayward Field, Eaton broke the decathlon world record for the first time. Eugene has long been a special place for him. Its where he and his wife, Canadian heptathlete Brianne Theisen-Eaton, met while attending the University of Oregon and rose to prominence.Eaton said he was shooting for the record, but his leg made it impossible.I had the same mindset, Eaton said. I would say the expectations personally and externally were a little bit different.The 28-year-old Eaton was in such control that his coach, Harry Marra, actually told him to run the final event, the 1,500, at a slower pace than normal. No sense putting any extra wear and tear on the leg with the Olympic decathlon in six weeks. He still ran event No. 10 in 4 minutes, 25.15 seconds, which was one of the top times.This meet defines Ashton Eaton way more than his world-record performances. Those were great performances, Marra said. But he had so many obstacles physically. ... He did this with a bum leg.A leg his coach wasnt sure was going to hold up during the 400 on Saaturday. Air Max 97 Clearance. It did.A leg Eaton wasnt sure was going to be ready for the 110-meter hurdles on Sunday.It was.And through this competition, Eaton learned a little bit more about himself -- he doesnt have to be super aggressive all the time. Smooth works almost as well.The (overall) reviews were pretty good, Eaton said. As a decathlon, if you dont leave with something frustrated then you should quit, because it was perfect.In command, Eaton even had time to take in some other events. He watched Chaunte Lowe win the high jump by holding hold off teenager Vashti Cunningham, the daughter of longtime NFL quarterback Randall Cunningham. He also caught Jeffery Hendersons win in the mens long jump and Allyson Felixs blistering performance in the 400.Now those were impressive.Its nice to have a front-row seat as a decathlete, on the field and get to see all that stuff, Eaton said. Those kinds of things are inspirational, and you try to learn from it. Sometimes, I try to pick up little things from the specialists.Taiwo had a solid performance to take second, while Zach Ziemek of Wisconsin wound up third. It was an event that was missing Trey Hardee, the 2012 Olympic silver medalist who didnt finish after suffering a left hamstring injury on the first day.Eatons big plans now will be to squeeze in some rest before he and his wife head to Rio. There, Eaton has a chance to make a little history as he tries to defend his title. That hasnt been done in the decathlon since British star Daley Thompson in 1980 and `84.That would be cool, Eaton said. Awesome company to be in. But there are really good competitors.Asked if he might chase after another world record in Rio, Eaton just grinned.The Olympic Games are so much different from anything else, Eaton said. You dont even talk about world records, in a way. If its there at the very end, sure, Ill run to get it. Other than that, its event to event.
