‘I’m Thrilled To Put This Behind Me’ — Amusan Reacts After Getting Clearance To Compete At WAC

Tobi Amusan is in buoyant mood after getting clearance to compete at the 2023 World Athletics Championships.

Amusan was cleared to compete at the competition by the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) on Thursday.

The 26-year-old was earlier suspended for failing to make herself available for three out of competition tests.

The Ogun-State born athlete with the decision, will now defend her 100m women’s hurdles title at the World Athletics Championships in Budapest, Hungary.

She is also the world record holder in the event.

“This morning, 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,” Amusan wrote on her Facebook page.

“I am thrilled to put this behind me, and I look forward to defending my title at next week’s World Championships.

“I generally have been and consistently will be an ally of clean sport.

“To my five fingers, God is the greatest and I genuinely appreciate y’all for the support.”

The 2023 World Athletics Championships will start on Saturday.

    Thank God that the queen of the track is back and eager to compete and defend her title. Thank you Lord

  • Amusan is our bride and pride, I was very sure the enemy will not stop the only eye of the world athletics championship, Nigeria can boast of presently. My people say “The COmmunity only NUT does not go missing in the fire, when being roasted, never.”
    I pray the burden does not affect her during the competition, and that the Lord will show Himself strong on her behalf in Jesus’ name.
    For those who did not believe in her innocence, may the Lord forgive you.
