CAS Prompts Date For Hearing Of Amusan-AIU Case

Nigerian-born athlete and World 100m heat record holder, Tobi Amusan has been notified about the new development of her case with the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU), as the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) fixed January 19 for hearing, platinumnewsng.com is reporting.

Unfortunately, Amusan’s loggerheads with the AIU got the media’s attention when the 26-year-old was said to had been provisionally suspended for committing an anti-doping violation rule of missing three appointed tests.

In her stance on being innocent, the Nigerian runner had to take the case to the Disciplinary Tribunal, where she was eventually cleared of such offense and permitted to participate at the World Diamond League in Budapest, Hungary.

However, the AIU and the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) will later challenge this decision of the Disciplinary Tribunal and made it known that they were making an attempt to upturn it at the CAS. While, the AIU filed its appeal on September 15, 2023, WADA followed suit two days later, showing their desperation to find the Nigerian guilty.

With the CAS set to be the final decision maker, Amusan and her team will be hoping that everything works in her favour and she can finally be at peace competing without any external influence. Meanwhile, CAS hearings are not open to the public and are conducted in person, by video conference, or in a mixed format.
