Who is Bobby-Gaye Wilkins?

Bobby-Gaye Wilkins is a Jamaican athlete who represented Jamaica at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, China, winning a bronze medal in the 4×400 metres relay.

Her first major international appearance came at the 2005 World Youth Championships in Athletics, where she reached the final of the 400 metres.

She was selected as a reserve for the relay at the 2009 World Championships in Athletics, but she did not compete. She reached the semi-finals of the 400 m at the 2010 IAAF World Indoor Championships, but enjoyed greater success in the women's relay: along with Clora Williams, Davita Prendergast and Novlene Williams-Mills, she won the bronze medal in a Jamaican indoor record of 3:28.49.

However, she failed her drug test at the competition, and the Jamaican team was disqualified. Her sample contained andarine, making her the second international runner to test positive for the class of anabolic drugs, after Thomas Goller. She received a two-year ban from competitive athletics for the infraction.
