Tobi Amusan loses the world title in the women’s 100-meter hurdles



On Thursday in Budapest, Tobi Amusan of Nigeria lost to Danielle Williams of Jamaica in the world championship women’s 100-meter hurdles.Rio Olympian Jasmine Camacho-Quinn of Puerto Rico was defeated by 30-year-old Williams, who had won in Beijing in 2015, with a time of 12.43 seconds.

American Kendra Harrison took home the bronze.Prior to the championship, Amusan’s provisional suspension was removed and she was found not to have violated any doping laws.

She was temporarily suspended by the Athletics Integrity Unit last month due to three instances of missing whereabouts.

Amusan was found to have missed three drug tests in a 12-month period, an offense that carries a two-year suspension sentence.

This led to the announcement of the suspension.”Tobi Amusan has not committed an Anti-Doping Rule Violation of three Whereabouts Failures within a 12-month period,” the Disciplinary Tribunal’s final ruling declared.

At the last hurdle in the finals on Thursday, Williams, who was running in lane two for outsiders, rose with Harrison and Camacho-Quinn.
