Sports Ministry Enforces Zero Tolerance On Out Of Competition Testings For World Championships, Commonwealth Games




July 14, 2022


Nigeria’s Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports Development has said it implemented a zero-tolerance policy on Out-of-Competition Testings for athletes in the build-up to the 2022 Commonwealth Games and World Athletics Championship.

After the incidents at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games involving non-compliance on O.C.T testing, the Ministry put its foot down in tandem with the recommendations of the National Assembly that athletes who do not complete their mandatory tests 2-3 weeks before international competitions will not be allowed to represent Nigeria.

The World Athletics Championships will start by the weekend in the United States while the Commonwealth Games will be staged in Birmingham from the 28th of July through to August 8th 2022.
