A panel of the Disciplinary Tribunal, by majority decision found that Tobi Amusan has not committed an Anti-Doping Rule Violation (ADRV) of three Whereabouts Failures within a 12-month period.
Amusan’s provisional suspension has now been lifted with immediate effect.
According to reports, two of the whereabout violations were struck out by an independent committee.
What this means that Tobi successfully proved that the tester didn’t do enough to meet and test her.
Tobi Amusan’s Performance Before The Suspension
At the beginning of the season, Tobi Amusan ran 100m PB and kicked off her season with 12.5s in the hurdles.
Both results means a hint of something special this season from the world record holder to track and field fans.
Two days after, Tobi Amusan made a second consecutive victory, with a time of 12:35s to win the 100mH over Nia Ali who came in 2nd at the Gyulai Istvan Memorial meet in Hungary.
Also, at the Stockholm Diamond League, Tobi Amusan won the Women’s 100m Hurdles at 12.52 seconds.
Head To head Vs Camacho
The women’s 100mH is one of the most unpredictable events, and it’s very exciting.
With over one month to the World Championships Jasmine Camacho-Quinn won the women’s 100mH at the Lausanne Diamond League in 12.40s (-1.4).
Meanwhile, the race was the first encounter between both athletes in the season.
Up until that race, Camacho had been undefeated in eight races so far as she laid down the challenge.
Tobi improved on her Season’s Best, crossing the line in a time of 12.47s to finish 3rd in women’s 100m Hurdles at the Ostrava Golden Spike. She finished behind Olympic champion Jasmine Camacho-Quinn who ran a Meeting Record of 12.42s to win the race, and Tia Jones 2nd in 12.44s.
From third in Ostrava to second, Tobi Amusan took the challenge to Jasmine Camacho-Quinn, finishing 2nd in an equal Season’s Best of 12.47s (-1.4).
Tobi Amusan: Breaking Down growth and race techniques in 2023
Firstly, Tobi got a good start without hitting a higher top end speed. It was Jasmine that came from the back to do that.
Tobi’s strong point last season was her top end speed while her start was her weakest. The reverse was the case in her first two competitive races this season.
Furthermore, running Two 12.3s in less than a month before world Champs is a massive statement to her competitors.
The slow start is giving way to proper execution and perfect timing with just days to the world championship in Budapest.
