The Athletics Integrity Unit has today announced the provisional suspension of the Nigerian runner and huddle Athletic, Tobi Amusan for missing anti-doping test.



A Provisional Suspension is when an Athlete or other Person is suspended temporarily from participating in any competition or activity in Athletics prior to a final decision at a hearing conducted under the World Athletics Anti-Doping Rules or the Integrity Code of Conduct.

A Provisional Suspension may be imposed in other doping cases depending on the nature and circumstances of the case in question.

A Provisional Suspension imposed in a non-doping case does not in any way abrogate the presumption of innocence and it is not an early determination of guilt. Rather, it is an order made on a precautionary basis to safeguard the interests of the sport.

The AIU confirms that it has today charged and provisionally suspended Tobi Amusan (NGR) for 3 Whereabouts Failures.

The Charge will be heard by the Disciplinary Tribunal and determined before the World Athletics Championships.
