Amusan celebrates CAS ruling on doping allegation

 Nigeria’s Tobi Amusan is in a buoyant mood after her victory at the Court of Arbitration for Sport, CAS.

CAS ruled in favour of the 27-year-old in an appeal brought before it by World Athletics and World Anti-Doping Agency.

“It’s all God,” Amusan said in an Instagram post alongside the court’s announcement.

The Ogun-State-born athlete was suspended by the Athletics Integrity Unit, AIU, in 2023 for missing three drug tests within 12 months.

The verdict was later overturned by the AIU panel.

Had the appeal been upheld, Amusan would have missed out on the 2024 Olympic Games and been suspended for two years.
