100m hurdles world record holder, Tobi Amusan, is suspended over a charge of missed drug tests.

 Amusan who took to her social media handle to disclose she has been charged with missing three doping tests, denied taking performance-enhancing substances and insists she will fight the charge.

Athletics has a three-strikes rule that states if an athlete does not provide accurate whereabouts information for a doping test they may incur a declaration of a missed test or a filing failure. Three strikes in a 12-month period is an anti-doping violation.

Under World Athletics Anti-Doping Rules, the applicable sanction for three failures is a two-year ineligibility, subject to a reduction to a minimum of one year depending on an athlete’s degree of fault.

Amusan won the Silesia Diamond League meet on Sunday, her second Diamond League victory this season.
