The investigation was triggered after Amusan was charged with violating anti-doping rules due to her failure to attend three mandatory drug tests within a span of twelve months.

A hearing concerning Amusan’s case has been scheduled, which will take place under the purview of the AIU.

However, the Athletics Integrity Unit’s commitment to transparency and fairness in its decision-making process aims to uphold the integrity of the sport, ensuring that justice prevails.
