Background

The Athletic Integrity Unity, AIU has cleared the World Women’s 100m hurdles champion and record holder, Tobi Amusan of her doping violations and charges. 

The 26-year-old athlete earlier faced charges of three whereabouts failures, which constitutes an anti-doping rule violation for missing three out-of-competition tests within a 12-month period, an offence she vehemently protested against.

This however was overturned as the Athletic Integrity Unity released a press statement saying;

“A panel of the Disciplinary Tribunal, by majority decision, has today found that Tobi Amusan has not committed an Anti-Doping Rule Violation (ADRV) of three Whereabouts Failures within a 12-month period.”

“AIU Head Brett Clothier has indicated the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) is
disappointed by this decision and will review the reasoning in detail before
deciding whether to exercise its right of appeal to the Court of Arbitration for
Sport (CAS) within the applicable deadline. The decision is currently confidential
but will be published in due course.
Amusan’s provisional suspension has now been lifted with immediate effect.”

It can be recalled, that because of the Nigerian track queen case with the AIU, she was earlier omitted from the list of athletes which was sent by Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN) to represent the country at the World Athletic Championship in Budapest, Hungary.

Amusan clearing means she will be in Budapest to defend her women’s 100m hurdle title which she won in 2022 at Oregon, USA, where she smashed the World Women’s 100m hurdles record running a time of 12.12 seconds in the semifinals.
