An Independent Tribunal, in a majority decision, has exonerated the Nigerian athlete from the charges presented by the Athletics Integrity Unit.
 
In a statement posted on her official Instagram account, Amusan conveyed a mix of relief and gratitude, acknowledging the unwavering support she received from fans, friends, and family during the challenging phase. Amusan reasserted her unwavering dedication to fair play, emphasizing that she consistently adhered to the rules and regulations stipulated by global sports organizations.
Amusan stated, “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.”
Expressing her enthusiasm, she added, “I am thrilled to put this behind me, and I look forward to defending my title at next week’s World Championships.”
 
In a previous Instagram post, weeks ago, Amusan firmly asserted her innocence, expressing confidence that the situation would be resolved prior to the World Championships.
 
The accomplished track star, who secured her fourth consecutive national champion title in Benin City, recently set a new meet record of 12.34 seconds at the Silesia Diamond League and achieved victory at the Wanda Diamond League in July.

  2. Hi! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
