AIU Lifts Tobi Amusan’s Suspension Ahead of World Athletics Championships
By Adeke Chukwuka
Tobi Amusan, the record-breaking 100 meters holder, finally celebrates as the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) clears her of all allegations after a thorough investigation. With a big nod, she’s set to compete at the upcoming World Athletics Championships, starting this Saturday in Budapest, Hungary.
Amusan had on July 19th been suspended for an alleged Anti-Doping Rule Violation (ADRV), which she firmly contested asserting her innocence. She stated, “I am a clean athlete and I am regularly (may be more than the usual) tested by the AIU. I was tested within days of my third ‘missed test’. I have faith that this will be resolved in my favour and that I will be competing at the World Championships in August.”
Following careful scrutiny, the disciplinary tribunal panel concluded that Amusan didn’t breach any Anti-Doping Rule Violation (ADRV) involving three Whereabouts Failures within a 12 months period.
Brett Clothier, AIU’s head, expressed disappointment with the decision and mentioned considering a possible appeal at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) within the applicable deadline. Details of the decision will be shared later. The decision is currently confidential but will be published in due course.
