BREAKING: Blessing Okagbare has been suspended indefinitely by the Athletic Integrity Unit

According to a press release from the Athletics Integrity Unit, the 32-year-old Nigerian athlete tested positive for a banned drug called human growth hormone.
Okagbare tested positive for the forbidden chemical in an out-of-competition test on July 19, four days before the Olympics began, according to the anti-doping organization.

After Okagbare, who won her heat in 11.05 seconds, qualified for the semifinals of the women’s 100m race at the Olympics, the results of that test were only received late Friday by track and field’s anti-doping organization.
Okagbare will not compete in the Tokyo Olympics as a result of his suspension.
