    Nigeria’s 4x400m Women’s Relay Team Banned from Rio 2016



    This is a sad one. The International Association of Athletics Federations, IAAF, has banned Nigeria’s 4x400m women’s relay team from attending the 2016 Olympic holding in Rio, Brazil, next month...


    IAAF stated that the Nigerian team was banned because one of them tested positive to drugs during the Confederation of African Athletics (CAA) Super Grand Prix/Warri Relays in Warri, Delta State on July 24th last year.

    Tosin Adeloye's positive drug test and subsequent ban for 8 years means all the results she achieved from the period she tested positive, individually and jointly will be disregarded.

    Sadly, the Nigerian team can no longer forward a new replacement
