I’m thrilled to put this behind me – Nigerian athlete, Tobi Amusan reacts after The Athletics Integrity Unit cleared her for missing three tests

World women’s 100m hurdles champion,  Tobi Amusan, has reacted to being cleared by the Athletics Integrity Unit for missing three tests.


The Nigerian athlete was provisionally suspended by the AIU in July for missing three tests.


On Thursday, August 17,  AIU lifted the suspension placed on her last month for whereabouts failures.


With the clearance, this means that Amusan, 26, can now compete at the 2023 World Athletics Championships, set to begin Saturday in Budapest, Hungary.


Taking to her Facebook page on Thursday, an excited Amusan wrote: “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.

“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.”


Amusan set the current world record of 12.12secs in the women’s 100m hurdles at last year’s championship in Oregon.
