AFN expresses shock over Okagbare’s doping rule violation | The Guardian Nigeria News - Nigeria and World News

The Athletics Federation of Nigeria has said it received with great shock the press release by the Athletics Integrity Unit suspending Blessing Okagbare for a doping rule violation.

The AIU in its statement said the Nigerian 100/200m record holder was provisionally suspended with immediate effect after a sample collected from the 32 year old tested positive for Human Growth Hormone.xGrowth hormone is a non-specified substance on the 2021 World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Prohibited List and a provisional suspension is mandatory following an adverse analytical finding for such substance under the World Athletics Anti-Doping Rules.

The athlete was notified of the adverse analytical finding and of her provisional suspension yesterday morning in Tokyo. She was scheduled to take part in the semi-finals of the women’s 100m in Tokyo. Read more: The Guardian Nigeria »
