Amusan cleared to compete in Paris Olympics

World record holder in the 100 metres hurdles, Tobi Amusan has been cleared to compete in the Olympics in Paris after the sport’s highest court rejected appeals against the ruling absolving her of doping-related charges on Friday.

Amusan was accused in 2023 of skipping three anti-doping tests in a 12-month period, but the World Athletics Disciplinary Tribunal absolved her of the charge.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) received an appeal from World Athletics and the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) challenging that ruling.

In a statement, CAS added that while the panel unanimously agreed that the athlete had made two paperwork errors, it did not verify the occurrence of the missed test that WA and WADA had claimed to have occurred—that would have been the third Whereabouts Failure in a 12-month period.
