KINGSTON (Reuters) - Jamaican sprinter Veronica Campbell-Brown has been cleared to resume her career by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), her American-based lawyer Howard Jacobs said on Monday.

The twice Olympic 200 meters champion was suspended by her country's national federation last year following a positive test for a banned diuretic.

"I can confirm that Veronica Campbell-Brown has been cleared by CAS," Jacobs told Reuters by email.

"All of her past results have been reinstated and she is free to compete effective immediately," he said, adding that Campbell-Brown intended to compete at the upcoming world indoor championships.
