AIU Appeals Tobi Amusan’s Doping Violation Verdict

0 281

The Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) said it has started the process of challenging the decision to clear Nigerian athlete Tobi Amusan of doping violations, after the body charged her with three whereabout failures in July before she was cleared by a panel in August.

Amusan just won her third consecutive women’s 100m hurdles Diamond League title in Eugene, Oregon, USA. She will now have to go through a another legal battle at the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

The Nigerian was first provisionally suspended by the AIU in July over three whereabouts failures.

But the Disciplinary Tribunal ruled in favour of the World Record holder, two days before the World Athletics Championships in Budapest last month.

She was unable to defend her world title in Budapest as she placed 7th in the final.

However, Amusan put her World Athletics Championships struggles behind her on Sunday, storming to a Season’s Best (SB) of 12.32s to win her third Diamond League title in Eugene.
