CJ Ujah who was a part of Great Britain’s silver medal winning 4x100m relay team has been suspended provisionally after failing a dope test. Italy edged Great Britain by a hundredth of second during the 4x100m relay. The report said that an illegal substance named as Ostarine and S-23 have been found in his system during tests.

The Athletics Integrity Unit announced the names of three other athletes as per anti-doping rules, Bahrain’s 1500 m runner Sadik Mikhou, Georgia’s shot putter Benik Amrayan, and Mark Otieno Odhiambo from Kenya. If the charges hold then these athletes will lose their medals even if it is a team event as in the case of CJ Ujah.
