British sprinter CJ Ujah, who was part of the team which won a silver medal in the men’s 4.100-metre relay event, has been provisionally suspended by the Athletic’s Integrity Unit (AIU) Thursday after testing positive for a banned substance.
It’s the same event Canadians Andre De Grasse, Aaron Brown, Jerome Blake and Brendon Rodney, raced to a bronze medal.
The AIU announced that the doping control laboratory in Tokyo had notified the International Testing Agency of an “adverse analytical finding” in Ujah’s doping sample.
It said Ujah’s sample contained the prohibited substances ostarine and S-23, which are selective androgen receptor modulators (SARM) and help with building muscle.
Ujah was part of the British quartet alongside Zharnel Hughes, Richard Kilty and Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake who finished second to Italy in a close race.
If found guilty, Ujah and the British team could be stripped of the silver medal.
