Marvin Anderson (born 12 May 1982) is a Jamaican sprint athlete.[1]

He finished sixth in the 200m final at the 2007 World Championships in Osaka where he also won a silver medal in the 4×100m relay team for Jamaica. He is a former student of Duncans All Age and William Knibb Memorial High School.

Anderson represented Jamaica at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. He competed at the 200 metres and placed third in his first round heat after Marlon Devonish and Kim Collins in a time of 20.85 seconds. With this result he qualified for the second round, but he did finish the second race and was eliminated.[1]

He tested positive for the stimulant 4-Methyl-2-hexanamine in June 2009.[2][3] A disciplinary panel organised by the Jamaican Anti-Doping Commission (JADCO) cleared him of a doping infraction on the grounds that the drug was not on the World Anti-Doping Agency's banned list. However, JADCO appealed their own panel's ruling, stating that the athlete should be disciplined as the drug was similar in structure to the banned substance tuaminoheptane.[4]
