Nigeria’s Tobi Amusan has received the positive outcome of having her doping allegations dismissed and her provisional suspension lifted.
A glimmer of hope has emerged for Nigeria’s illustrious figure in Track and Field, Tobi Amusan, as she has been declared free of any Anti-Doping Rule Violation (ADRV) charges.
The holder of the 100m Hurdle World Record faced a provisional suspension from the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) in July due to her accumulation of three missed tests within a single year.
Despite consistently proclaiming her innocence and asserting her status as a clean athlete, Tobi Amusan had to await the decision of a specially convened Tribunal assigned to investigate the situation.
The 26-year-old can now breathe a sigh of relief, as the tribunal has officially exonerated her from all accusations related to anti-doping violations.
In an official statement from the AIU, it was communicated that the Disciplinary Tribunal, through a majority ruling, has determined that Tobi Amusan did not transgress the Anti-Doping Rule by accumulating three Whereabouts Failures within a twelve-month period.
AIU’s Discontent with Tobi Amusan’s Outcome
Nevertheless, the AIU has expressed its discontent with the Disciplinary Tribunal’s verdict and has signaled a potential intention to bring the case before the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).
“Brett Clothier, the Head of the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU), has conveyed the AIU’s disappointment with this decision, underscoring its plan to meticulously review the rationale before making a determination about pursuing its right to appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) within the stipulated time frame.”
