Tobi Amusan has not been listed by the Athletic Federation of Nigeria (AFN) for the 2023 World Athletics Championship in Budapest, Hungary.
AFN published the athletes to represent the country on Tuesday.
According to a release from the athletic body, notable Nigerian male athletes like Itshekiri Usheoritshe, Ashe Favour, Seye Ogunlewe, Alaba Akintola, Fakorede Adekalu, Karlington Anunagba, and Enekwechi Chukwuebuka (shot put) were listed.
For the females, Ese Brume, George Patience Okon, Sucess Umukoro, Favour Ofili, Rosemary Chukwuma and Ruth Usoro made the cut.
Also included are Deborah Oke, Imaobong Uko, Nse Uko and Pamela Amaechi.
Meanwhile, world record holder in the 100m hurdles Tobi Amusan was not listed due to charges against her by Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) for missing three doping tests.
Amusan was charged with three missed drug tests in a 12-month span, which can lead up to a two-year suspension even if an athlete never fails a drug test.
This year’s Championship will hold from 19 to 27 August.
