Blessing Okagbare: Dina Asher-Smith’s rival ruled out of Tokyo Olympics after provisional ban
The Athletics Integrity Unit announced that Okagbare had tested positive for human growth hormone

Nigerian sprinter Blessing Okagbare is out of the Tokyo Olympics after being handed a provisional doping ban on the day of her 100m semi-final.

The Athletics Integrity Unit announced that Okagbare had “tested positive for human growth hormone” in an out-of-competition test on 19 七月.

That resulted in a mandatory suspension, coming on the day that Okagbare was due to race against Great Britain’s Dina Asher-Smith in their semi-final in Tokyo.

Okagbare finished first in her heat for the women’s 100m on Friday, recording a time of 11.05 seconds to beat Britain’s Asha Philip and Tynia Gaither of the Bahamas.

That put the 32-year-old into a third consecutive Olympic semi-final.

Okagbare, who won Olympic silver in the long jump in Beijing 13 几年前, holds the Commonwealth Games record in the women’s 100 米, set in Glasgow in 2014.
