Nigeria’s Tobi Amusan, the world champion and world record holder in the 100m hurdles, has reacted to her being cleared by the World Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) of whereabouts rule violation.
PeoplesActs News earlier reported that the AIU cleared Amusan to compete at the 2023 World Athletics Championships which begins on Saturday in Budapest.
The AIU in a statement on Thursday lifted the suspension placed on Amusan in July for allegedly missing three tests in 12 months.
Reacting to the development, Amusan said that an Independent Tribunal that heard her case and ruled that she did not violate the AIU whereabouts rules, therefore, she will not be sanctioned and none of her results will be precluded.
Amusan wrote on her Facebook page saying, “This morning I found out that the Independent Tribunal that heard my case has ruled that I did not violate the whereabouts rules and as a result, I will not be sanctioned & none of my results will be precluded.
“I am thrilled to put this behind me, and I look forward to defending my title at next week’s World Championships.
“I generally have been & consistently will be an ally of CLEAN SPORT.
“To my Five Fingers; God is the greatest & I genuinely appreciate y’all for the support.”
