The Court of Arbitration for Sports have cleared Tobiloba Amusan, the World Record holder in the women’s 100m hurdles.

The Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU)  previously charged  Amusan for three whereabouts failures. She was subsequently provisionally suspended but cleared by a disciplinary tribunal in a 2-1 verdict.

However, the AIU expressed its disappointment at the verdict and vowed to appeal at the Court of Arbitration for Sports, the highest authority for Sports in the World.

The Panel unanimously struck down the appeal, holding that Amusan had two not three whereabouts violations and should not have been suspended.

“Today, CAS dismissed the appeal filed by World Athletics and the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) against the decision issued by the World Athletics Disciplinary Tribunal on 17 August 2023, with regards to the Whereabouts charge against Oluwatobiloba “Tobi” Amusan (Nigeria),” a statement said.
