In July 2022 the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) on behalf of World Athletics has reported an anti-doping rule violation against the Botswanan Athlete Nijel Amos after his A and B samples tested positive for the prohibited substance GW1516 .
After notification a provisional suspension was ordered. The Athlete alleged that the supplement he had used was the source of the positive test. However analysis of this supplement in February 2023 revealed no banned substances.
Ultimately in April 2023 the Athlete gave a timely admission, waived his right for a hearing and accepted the sanction proposed by the AIU.
Because the Athlete had signed and submitted the Admission of Anti-Doping Rule Violations and Acceptance of Consequences Form he received a 1 year reduction from the AIU.
Therefore the AIU decides on 20 April 2023 to impose a 3 year period of ineligibility on the Athlete, starting on the date of the provisional suspension, i.e. on 12 July 2022.
