The team headed by WADA's director of education and program development Rob Koehler, also includes Rune Anderson, the global anti-doping agency's director of standards and harmonization, and Kerwin Clarke, manager of program development.

The trio arrived in Jamaica on Monday afternoon but declined to respond to questions posed by members of the local media.
