Nigeria’s athlete thrown out of Rio after failing dope test

The International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) has disqualified Nigeria’s women’s 4x400m quartet, Tosin Adeloye, Rio 2016, after failing drug test.

Nigeria’s medals prospect in the track and field of the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, diminished by one when Tosin Adeloye, a member of the team, tested positive to banned substance at the Confederation of African Athletics (CAA) Super Grand Prix/Warri Relays which took place in Warri, Delta state, on July 24, 2015.

The quarter-miler, who has now been banned for eight years, was a member of the Nigerian quartet that placed fourth at the IAAF World Championship in Beijing in August 2015.
