Blessing Okagbare Reacts To The Ten Year Ban Handed To Her For Doping Violation (Updated: 3 months ago)


Blessing Okagbare, Nigeria’s 2008 long jump silver medalist, has reacted to the decision of the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) to hand her a 10-year-ban for doping violations.

The 33-year-old, who is also a sprinter, was expelled from the Tokyo Olympics last year before the women’s 100m semi-finals after testing positive for human growth hormone at an out-of-competition test in Slovakia on July 19.

On Friday February 18, the AIU announced its decision to place her on a 10-year ban after she was found guilty.

Taking to her Instagram page to react to this decision, Blessing said her lawyers are studying it for their next line of action.

''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'' she wrote
