Nigerian sprinter, Blessing Okagbare, on Saturday, reacted to the 10 years ban slammed on her for multiple breaches of anti-doping rules.
DAILY POST had reported that the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) on Friday announced Okagbare’s ban.
AIU statement said the sole arbitrator adjudicating the case concluded that Okagbare’s “use of multiple prohibited substances” was “part of an organised doping regimen in the lead-up to the Tokyo Olympic Games.”
Reacting, the 33-year old in a tweet on her official Twitter handle, said her lawyers are studying AIU’s statement for her next line of action.
She wrote, “My attention has been drawn to the statement issued by the AIU regarding its disciplinary panel decision.
“My lawyers are currently studying it for our next line of action which we will inform you soon.
