Jamaican discus thrower Traves Smikle failed drug test

Traves Smikle competed at London Olympics 2012; He was found positive for a banned substance after a series of trials in June. His fellows, Asafa Powell, Sherone Simpson, Veronica Campbell-Brown and another discus throwe player Allison Randall also failed the same kind of test.
Traves Smikle is quick to admit though and said, he will be taking responsibility for whatever is found illegal inside his body.
I must take responsibility for whatever is found in my body 
However, I didn't knowingly or wilfully ingest any banned substance. I have requested analysis of the B sample.
Meanwhile, title holder for 100m Asafa Powell was also found positive for oxilofrine. The same goes with 4 x 100m relay silver medalist Sherone Simpson. Campbell Brown and Allison Randall were found positive for banend diuretic - a substance that promotes the production of urine.
