Nigeria’s track queen, Tobi Amusan could not hide her excitement after she was cleared by the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) to compete at the World Athletics Championships.
The 100m hurdles women‘s world record holder was suspended by the AIU for failing to attend three out of competition tests.
The suspension temporarily put her participation at the World Athletics Championships in doubt.
The 26-year-old however got a reprieve after the suspension was lifted on Thursday night.
Amusan took to the social media to express her feelings following the decision of the AIU.
“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 and none of my results will be precluded,” Amusan wrote on her Facebook page
“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 and consistently will be an ally of clean sport.
“To my five fingers, God is the greatest and I genuinely appreciate y’all for the support.” READ ALSO:
