Olympics Champion Miller-Uibo Calls For Investigation Why Reigning World Champion Naser Should Be Cleared

Just few days after the WADA President, Witold Bunka raised concerned over surprised doping clearance of Reigning World Champion, Salwa Naser. The athlete she surprisingly beaten last year, Olympics Champion Miller-Uibo has called for investigation.

Enraged Miller-Uibo believes that Naser should not have run in Doha and is demanding that the World Athletics president, Seb Coe, detail “each step of all the failures that unfolded from this case”.

“My concern is with World Athletics and the AIU and the role they play,” she added. “The recent turn of events, with their littered errors, in my view, opens the door for many questions: What took them so long to make this information public? How is it possible that this case lingered on until the world championships in 2019 and the athlete provisionally suspended?’”

Earlier this year it also emerged that Naser had also missed another test in January 2020, making it four whereabouts failures in total. However one of her filing failures in March 2019 was also backdated to 1 January 2019 so she did not have three offences in a 12-month period and a ban.

The Wada president, Witold Banka, has said his organisation will review the case. “As it relates to Salwa Eid Naser and the World Athletics disciplinary tribunal decision on her case I am concerned,” added Banka. “Wada will analyse it carefully and exercise its right to appeal if necessary.”
