Ujah was provisionally suspended past thirty day period for allegedly breaching anti-doping rules at the Tokyo Video games when Ostarine and S-23 — both of those substances prohibited by globe anti-doping organisation WADA — had been detected in his sample.
Ujah and his relay group mates Zharnel Hughes, Richard Kilty and Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake are at risk of losing their medals. If the ban is upheld, Canada would be upgraded to silver and China would get bronze.
“The CAS Anti-Doping Division will consider the make a difference of the acquiring of an Anti-Doping Rule Violation (ADRV) and the disqualification of the men’s 4×100 relay results of the Great Britain crew,” the ITA mentioned in a assertion.
“In this regard, pursuant to the IOC ADR and the Planet Athletics Anti-Doping Procedures: ‘where the athlete who has fully commited an Anti-Doping Rule Violation competed as a member of a relay staff, the relay team shall be automatically disqualified from the event in question’.”
“The scenario will then be referred to the Athletics Integrity Unit (Earth Athletics) to stick to up on sanctions past the Olympic Online games Tokyo 2020.”
The British Olympic Association’s chairman Hugh Robertson has stated it would be “tragic” if other customers of the relay staff had been stripped of their silver medals in excess of Ujah’s anti-doping rule violation.
