Jamaican sprinter Veronica Campbell-Brown was cleared by the The Court of Arbitration for Sport on Tuesday amid allegations of anti-doping brought against her last May, according to a report from David McFadden of  the Associated Press.

Because of the ruling, the CAS turned down a decision from a Jamaican disciplinary panel and an international review board recommending a two-year suspension for the 31-year-old. The court considered her claim that drug testing standards were violated during the collection of her urine sample, which had initially turned up positive for a banned diuretic last May. Campbell-Brown said she would never "resort to illegal means to success," according to the report.

The sprinter has taken home three gold medals in her career: one in the 200 meter race in the 2004 Olympics in Athens; a second in 4x100 meter relay in Athens; and a third in the 200 meter race in the 2008 Olympics in Beijing.
