Women’s hurdles world record-holder, Tobi Amusan, had disclosed that she has been charged with an alleged anti-doping rule violation, casting doubt on her participation in next month’s world championships.
She revealed this via a post on Instagram account on Tuesday.
According to the Ogun-born athlete, the charge will be defended as she is clean.
She wrote, “Today the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) has charged me with an alleged rule violation for having 3 missed tests in 12 months,” she said in a post on Instagram.

“I intend to fight this charge and will have my case decided by a tribunal of 3 arbitrators before the start of next month’s World Championships,” she said.
“I am a CLEAN ATHLETE, and I am regularly; (maybe more than the usual) tested by the AIU – I was tested within days of my third ‘missed test.’ I have FAITH that this will be resolved in my favour and that I will be competing at the World Championships in August.”
