Tobi Amusan, the reigning World 100m hurdles champion and record holder, has been given the green light to compete at the upcoming World Athletics Championships set to begin this Saturday in Budapest, Hungary.
Previously, the 26-year-old athlete faced charges of three whereabouts failures, which constitutes an anti-doping rule violation for missing three out-of-competition tests within a 12-month period. Amusan had contested this charge.
A tribunal of three arbitrators absolved Amusan of two out of the three missed tests, after the Nigerian athlete argued that the tester had not made sufficient efforts to locate her.
Notably, throughout this process, Amusan consistently maintained her innocence and stated that she is a clean athlete.
The athlete released a statement acknowledging the decision and saying she was looking forward to competing at the championships.
