Tobi Amusan is set to defend her world record in Budapest, Hungary after she was initially suspended for a suspected rule violation.
Amusan was provisionally suspended by the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) in May for skipping three out-of-competition tests within 12 months.
She was cleared by the Disciplinary Tribunal on allegations of doping violations after she won another hurdle race in a recent event.
The 26-year-old hurdles queen maintained she’s not a drug cheat and will always be an “ally of clean sport”.
On Thursday, the committee agreed that Tobi had not committed any crime and her suspension had been lifted with immediate effect.
Taking to her Instagram to express her gratitude, she wrote:
“This morning, (evening in Nigeria) I found out that the Independent Tribunal that heard my case has ruled that I did not violate the whereabouts rules and as a result, I will not be sanctioned and none of my results will be precluded.”
“I am thrilled to put this behind me, and I look forward to defending my title at the World Championships. I generally have been and consistently will be an ally of clean sport.”
“To my five fingers; God is the greatest and genuinely appreciate you all for the support.”
The 2023 World Athletics Championship will take place between August 19 and 27 in Budapest, Hungary.
