Doping: Blessing Okagbare Accepts 10-year Ban

Doping: Blessing Okagbare Accepts 10-year Ban (Updated: Wednesday, 23rd March 2022, 06:52 AM)


Nigerian track and field athlete, Blessing Okagbare, will not appeal the 10-year suspension handed to her by the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) Disciplinary Tribunal.

The 33-year-old was punished after the presence and use of various illegal substances was discovered in her system.

Okagbare also declined to participate in the AIU’s probe into her case.

She had threatened to take up her right to appeal against the decision at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) within 30 days, which elapsed on March 18, 2022.

CAS has now confirmed that the former Commonwealth Games double sprint champion did not file any appeal upon enquiry.

”Please be advised that at the time of writing, no appeals have been filed at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in relation to this matter,” CAS Communications Officer, Katy Hogg, said.

Okagbare had denied taking prohibited substances by injection or at all.

She pointed to her long history of ‘negative’ tests, including 10 of the 12 she underwent between 16 April 2021 and 30 July 2021.
