The two sprinters, who were among five Jamaicans to test positive at their country’s national championships last June, were given the dates on Friday during a preliminary hearing at the Jamaica Conference Center in Kingston.

Simpson will face the panel January 7-8 while Powell will appear from January 14-15 in an attempt to clear their names.
