I’m Looking At My Legal Options: Blessing Okagbare On 10 Years Ban For Doping


Nigerian Athlete, Blessing Okagbare has finally broken silence on her 10 years career ban by the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) for alleged doping.

It was reported earlier that the athlete who is also a sprinter was banned because of the suspicious usage of illegal drugs and her refusal to cooperate with the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) on the investigation of the case.

Following the proposed ban, the Nigeria 2008 Olympics long jump silver medalist, Blessing, took to her Twitter page to declare that her observation has been drawn towards the case at hand and her lawyers are on the move for the next line of action which will be announced soon.

According to her words, she wrote;

“My attention has been drawn to the statement issued by the AIU regarding its disciplinary panel decision.
“My lawyers are currently studying it for our next line of action which we will inform you soon.”
