Nigeria may lose Commonwealth Games gold following failed drug test of athlete

The gold medal won by the team made up of Tobi Amusan, Rosemary Chukwuma, Favour Ofili, and Grace Nwokocha is at stake following a drug test speculation.

Nigeria is reported to be on the brink of losing the women’s 4x100m relay gold won at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.

This speculation came following a yet-to-be-named member of the team that failed a drug test; a practice frowned upon in sports.

The Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN) have, however, been notified of the development by the World Anti-Doping Agency, with the confirmation of the B sample still being awaited.

Pending investigation, the name of the affected team member remains hidden.
