Budapest 2023: World Record Holder Tobi Amusan Cleared to Compete at World Athletics Championships

Current World 100m hurdles champion and record holder, Tobi Amusan has been cleared by the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) to compete in the World Athletics Championships taking place in Hungary

In a statement from the AIU on Thursday, the body lifted the suspension placed on her, last month concerning failure to carry out anti-doping test.

Part of the statement reads,

“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”.

Tobi’s clearance by the AIU will see her compete at the World Athletics Championships which starts this Saturday in Budapest, Hungary.

AIU Head, Brett Clothier has further 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.

Amusan now has the chance to defend the only title she has not defended in her career after her successful defence of her Nigeria, African Championships, African Games, Commonwealth Games and Diamond League titles.

Fans and colleagues of Amusan are ecstatic to hear the positive news about her anti-doping charges.
