Tobi Amusan not cleared of doping, says World Athletics


Tobi Amusan

The World Athletics Organisation has refuted claims that Tobi Amusan has been cleared of doping and would be able to defend her title at the World Athletics Championships in Budapest, Hungary.

Tobi’s name was previously barred from competing in the next competition due to the doping probe.

But it was later included last week with the caveat that her participation would be contingent on the outcome of the AIU’s whereabouts failing charge.

However, the world’s athletics organisation stated on Sunday that the Nigerian star had not been cleared for the race.

In a statement issued by Nicole Jeffery, Head of Communications, it partly read; “Please be advised that reports that Tobi Amusan has been cleared to compete in Budapest are wrong”.

“No decision has been made in this case yet. When a decision is made, it will be announced by the Athletics Integrity Unit.”

The 2023 World Athletics Championships in Budapest begins from 19 August. The competition will end on 27 August.
