Nigeria’s 4x400m Women Relay Team Out Of Olympics Over Use Of Drugs


The International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) have thrown Nigeria’s 4×400m women relay team out from next month’s Olympic Games In Brazil.

This disqualification is as a result of one of the team players, Tosin Adeloye’s positive drugs test at the Confederation of African Athletics (CAA) Super Grand Prix/Warri Relays in Warri, Delta State on July 24, 2015.

Adeloye was a member of the Nigerian quartet that finished fourth in Beijing August last year at the IAAF World Championships. She ran the third leg in the semi-finals where the team ran 3:23.27 seconds, the second fastest time in Nigeria’s all-time record.
