British Sprinter Uja B sample positive at the Tokyo Olympics

London, September 14 (Xinhua)-British Olympic silver medalist CJ Ujah from the Tokyo Olympics has been tested positive for B samples, the International Testing Institute (ITA) confirmed on Tuesday.

ITA, the Olympic anti-doping tester, reported on Tuesday that Uja’s B-sample analysis “confirms the results of the first A-sample,” and referred the case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport. Split.

Uja, 27, has already been suspended after his A sample showed “presence / use of banned substances (enobosarm and S-23)”. Samples were collected by ITA under anti-doping control of the competition held in Tokyo on August 6th, following the final of the men’s 4x100m relay final at the Olympic Games.

Uja ran the first leg of the British 4x100m relay team, finishing second behind champion Italy by 0.01 seconds. Canada won the bronze medal on August 6th, with China in fourth place.

Uja claimed last month that “I’m not a cheat and I’ve never intentionally taken a banned substance and I’ll never take it.”
