Nigeria’s women relay team thrown out Rio after failing dope test

Nigeria’s women’s 4x400m quartet has been disqualified from Rio 2016 by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF).

Nigeria’s medals prospect in the track and field of the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, diminished by one when Tosin Adeloye, a member of the team, tested positive to banned substance at the Confederation of African Athletics (CAA) Super Grand Prix/Warri Relays which took place in Warri, Delta state, on July 24, 2015.

The quarter miler, who has now been banned for eight years, was a member of the Nigerian quartet that placed fourth at the IAAF World Championship in Beijing in August 2015.
