Amusan begins title defence in Budapest

However, Amusan was provisionally suspended last month for missing her whereabouts tests, sparking fears that she might not compete in Budapest.

However, the Athletics Integrity Unit cleared Tobi Amusan last Thursday to defend her title.

“A panel of the Disciplinary Tribunal, by majority decision, has today (Thursday) found that Tobi Amusan has not committed an Anti-Doping Rule Violation (ADRV) of three Whereabouts Failures within a 12-month period,” the statement read.

A relieved Amusan added that she was in top shape to defend her title, despite her suspension.

“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 & consistently will be an ally of CLEAN SPORT. To my Five Fingers; God is the greatest & I genuinely appreciate y’all for the support,” Amusan stated after her clearance.

The 26-year-old will be running in lane four and face stiff competition from Olympic bronze medal winner Megan Tapper of Jamaica in the fifth and final heat of the first round.
