WADA director general David Howman says the anti-doping body's executive committee expects to look at the report from a two-day inspection trip to Jamaica next week.

US ATHLETES TO WATCH

The Winter Olympics in Sochi are just weeks away. See which American athletes to watch as we count down to the Games.

Howman says the audit report on gaps in Jamaica's testing of athletes will likely be presented to WADA's board on the first day of its conference in South Africa on Tuesday.

Howman says WADA also expects to meet with Kenyan officials at the four-day conference in Johannesburg next week, with the East African country also under scrutiny.

Howman said Wednesday he was "content" with the process that was followed with WADA's inspection of the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission last week, but "frustration" was "a good word" to describe WADA's feelings over Kenya's delay in investigating a spike in positive doping tests among its athletes.
