Beijing News (reporter Xu bangyin) Monaco local time on October 20, the World Athletics Federation integrity Committee updated information, the World Athletics Federation disciplinary court rejected the doping violation charges against Nasser, the womens 400m champion of Doha world championships. The previous temporary suspension of Nasser was no longer effective, and athletes can participate again.
According to previous reports, in early June this year, the integrity Committee of the World Federation of athletics announced that from January 1, 2019 to January 24, 2020, Nasser missed four flight drug tests.
According to the relevant regulations of the World Athletics Federation, athletes should also timely report their whereabouts information outside the competition, so that they can accept the drug test at any time. If an athlete misses the drug test three times a year or his whereabouts information is wrong, he will be banned for one to two years. It was in accordance with the above provisions that the integrity Committee of the World Athletics Federation charged Nasser, who was also temporarily suspended in early June.
However, the IAAF disciplinary court found in the course of investigation that Nasser missed the drug test on April 12, 2019, and the responsibility was not on the athletes. At the time, a doping control officer was confused by the parking code outside the athletes apartment building and accidentally knocked on the door of a nearby storage room, which was not Nassers residence.
Bahraini athlete Nasser, 22, is the first person in the womens 400m field. In the 2017 London World Championships, Nasser won the womens 400m silver medal. In the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta, Nasser won 3 gold medals. In 2019, Nasser is the winner of the Diamond League and the Doha world championships.
It is true that Nasser has missed many important competitions in the past four months. However, now that her ban has been lifted, she still has plenty of time to prepare for next years Tokyo Olympic Games, strive to achieve a grand slam in the womens 400m field, and make an impact on the womens 400m world record.
