Women’s 100m Hurdles World record holder, Tobi Amusan has reacted to her clearance by the disciplinary tribunal who ruled that she hasn’t committed any Anti-Doping Rule Violation (ADRV).
Tobi Amusan was provisionally suspended by the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) in July for missing three tests within a calendar year. Through it all, she reiterated her innocence, insisting that she is a clean athlete, and will wait on the verdict of a tribunal that was set up to rule on the matter.
On Thursday night, she was finally cleared by the disciplinary tribunal and her suspension was lifted in a press release by the AIU.

Following this announcement, Tobi Amusan released a statement on the decision as she looks forward to defending her title at the World Championships in Budapest this August.
“This morning, (evening in Nigeria) 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 the World Championships. I generally have been and consistently will be an ally of clean sport.
“To my five fingers; God is the greatest and genuinely appreciate you all for the support,” Amusan wrote on Instagram.
While this issue might have hampered her preparation for the World Championships mentally, the women’s 100mH World Record (WR) holder and reigning champion will now fully focus on defending her title when she takes to the tracks on Tuesday evening in Budapest.
