Tobi Amusan

Nigeria’s Tobi Amusan has received approval to participate in the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris, as reported by TALKING ARENA.

The appeals made by the World Athletics (WA) and the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) against the female 100-meter hurdles world record holder were rejected by the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS).

In agreement with the World Athletics Disciplinary Tribunal’s (WADT) earlier decision, the CAS declared Tobi Amusan innocent of any anti-doping regulation breaches.

Last year, the 28-year-old athlete was banned by the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) due to missing three drug tests in a span of twelve months.

A two-year period of disqualification was requested for Amusan by the organization.

The AIU overturned the ban, permitting her participation in the 2023 World Athletics Championship.

This decision by the CAS signifies the conclusion of a legal procedure that commenced with the WADT’s initial ruling on August 17, 2023.
