Cadogan quits

Cadogan quits
13 Dec

A top local athlete has decided to call it quits at just age 23.

Levi Cadogan has reported that he's retiring from track and field, with word coming Tuesday night on social media via his Instagram and twitter accounts.

Cadogan posted on his Instagram page that he has never been able to say before that he could miss a sport, but he admits that track and field has been nice to him. However he's announcing his retirement and saying goodbye.

While on his twitter page, Cadogan thanked Barbados, and reiterated that he will miss the sport.

This development comes on the heels of an adverse analytical finding from a recent drugs test.

Cadogan was scheduled to meet with an independent panel of the National Anti-doping Disciplinary Committee Tuesday evening, to determine if the substance found in one of his samples was intentionally taken by him.

One reliable source has noted that the substance found is not an anabolic steroid, therefore the panel will be attempting to determine if doping indeed took place.

There's no specific timeline for the panel to issue an official report after Tuesday evening's meeting.

When contacted by CBC Sports, the Olympian declined comment.

Cadogan, a sprinter in the 100 and 200 metres, ran at the Rio Olympic Games last year, while he also represented the country at this year's World Championships in London and also at the World's in Beijing in 2015.
