World women’s 100m hurdles champion and record holder Tobi Amusan was clearly missing from Team Nigeria’s list of 26 athletes to this year’s World Athletics Championships, which was released by the Athletics Federation of Nigeria.
The world championships will hold from August 19 to August 27 in Budapest, Hungary.
Amusan’s participation at the competition has been uncertain after she was provisionally suspended by the Athletics Integrity Unit for missing three drug tests this season.
While the AIU also stated that there would be a hearing on her case before the World Championships, she also vowed to fight the charges and prove her innocence, but nothing has been heard about the proceedings, with just 9 days to the championships.
The Athletics Federation of Nigeria also omitted US-based sprinter, Udodi Onwuzurike and Godson Brume from the list.
