Kingston, Jamaica • Jamaican 400-meter runner Dominique Blake has been banned from the track for six years after failing a dope test.

Blake tested positive last year for methyhexaneamine, a stimulant that is commonly used as a nasal decongestant and banned in competition.

On Thursday, the Jamaica Anti-Doping Disciplinary Panel handed down the ban for Blake's positive test during Jamaica's Olympic trials last June. She finished sixth in the 400 meters.

Blake also was banned for nine months after ephedrine was found in her system in 2006.

She competed for Penn State from 2004 to 2008.
