Nigerian Sprinter Blessing Okagbare has been provisionally suspended by the Athletics Integrity Unit after one of her Out of Competition tests samples came back positive. She will now miss this morning’s 100m semis.
The Nigerian had won her 100m heat on Friday and was due to race in the semi-finals on Saturday.

The AIU said Okagbare was notified of her provisional suspension on Saturday.
It added it would not be making any further comment at this stage.
