The World Athletics says it has not cleared Nigeria’s athlete, Tobi Amusan, to compete in the World Championship, which kicks off in Budapest, Hungary.
Amusan’s chances of participating at the Budapest 2023 World Championships hung in the balance due to the doping investigation she was undergoing.
The Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN) excluded her name from the upcoming competition as the world’s athletics body had not confirmed her.
But there was misinterpretation after AFN included Amusan’s name in the world athletics championship list.
Amusan ran the fastest time ever in the hurdles at 12.12 seconds in the semi-final of the women’s 100m hurdles and in the final recorded a 12.06 seconds finish ahead of the Budapest 2023 contest where she is the woman to beat.
