Tokyo medallist Ujah’s B-sample tests optimistic, case referred to CAS | More sports News – Times of India

British Olympic 4x100m relay silver medallist Chijindu Ujah‘s B-sample has additionally confirmed an Adverse Analytical Finding (AAF) and his case will likely be referred to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, the International Testing Agency (ITA) mentioned on Tuesday.
Ujah was provisionally suspended final month for allegedly breaching anti-doping guidelines on the Tokyo Games when Ostarine and S-23 — each substances prohibited by world anti-doping organisation WADA — have been detected in his pattern.
Ujah and his relay group mates Zharnel Hughes, Richard Kilty and Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake are in danger of shedding their medals. If the ban is upheld, Canada could be upgraded to silver and China would obtain bronze.
“The CAS Anti-Doping Division will consider the matter of the finding of an Anti-Doping Rule Violation (ADRV) and the disqualification of the men’s 4×100 relay results of the Great Britain team,” the ITA mentioned in a press release.
“In this regard, pursuant to the IOC ADR and the World Athletics Anti-Doping Rules: ‘the place the athlete who has dedicated an Anti-Doping Rule Violation competed as a member of a relay group, the relay group shall be routinely disqualified from the occasion in query’.”
“The case will then be referred to the Athletics Integrity Unit (World Athletics) to follow up on sanctions beyond the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020.”
The British Olympic Association’s chairman Hugh Robertson has mentioned it could be “tragic” if different members of the relay group have been stripped of their silver medals over Ujah’s anti-doping rule violation.
