Two Jamaican athletes have been tested positive for banned substances.
They are: Dominique Blake and Ricardo Cunningham, an 800m runner.
Cunningham was tested positive for the substance pseudoephedrine.
It was not immediately clear for what substance Blake tested positive.
Blake went to the Olympics as part of the 4X400m relay team but did not run.
Cunningham however did not qualify to go to the Olympics.
Blake and Cunningham appeared this morning at a disciplinary hearing of the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission.
