Amusan Cleared For Olympics, Doping Charges Dismissed By CAS

June 29th, 2024

Amusan, 27, was charged in July 2023 with missing three anti-doping tests in a period of 12 months but was cleared of the offence by the Disciplinary Tribunal of the sport’s governing body, World Athletics.

However, World Athletics and the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) against that decision.

CAS said in a statement that its panel “unanimously acknowledged that the Athlete committed two filing failures but did not confirm the existence of a missed test, alleged by WA and WADA, which would have been the third Whereabouts Failure committed within a 12-month period”.

Amusan set the world record of 12.12sec in the world championships in Eugene, Oregon, in July 2022 and went on to win the title.
