Doping: Nigeria Loses Commonwealth Games’ Gold To England

Nigeria has lost the women’s 4×100 metres relay gold of 2022 Commonwealth Games to England following indictment of the country’s anchor in the race, Grace Nwokocha for doping.

The Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) announced this on Friday.

England finished second in the race at the Games in Birmingham in August.

However, the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) later provisionally suspended Nigeria’s anchor Grace Nwokocha for the use of banned substances.

As a result, her individual and team results at Birmingham 2022 have been annulled by the CGF.
