The Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) Disciplinary Tribunal has cleared Tobi Amusan of the anti-doping violation allegations against her.
This was contained in a statement by the AIU on Thursday.
The panel which sat on Thursday, found Amusan not guilty of “Anti-Doping Rule Violation (ADRV) of three Whereabouts Failures within a 12-month period.”
The statement read, “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.
“AIU Head Brett Clothier has 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. The decision is currently confidential but will be published in due course.
“Amusan’s provisional suspension has now been lifted with immediate effect.”
With the new development, Amusan is now eligible to feature at the World Athletics Championships which begins in Budapest, Hungary on Saturday.
The reigning world champion and world record holder was provisionally suspended by the AIU on July 20 for allegedly missing three whereabouts tests within a 12-month period.
The provisional suspension meant she was ineligible for the championships.
The 26-year-old who insisted her innocence, said she would contest the charged at a tribunal of three arbitrators before next month’s World Championships in Budapest.
According to her, she got tested “within days of my third ‘missed test.’”.
The athlete insisted that she is clean and “regularly; (maybe more than the usual) tested by the AIU.”
