The British 4x100m relay team has been stripped off their silver medals from the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. CJ Ujah has tested positive for two banned substances, which has resulted to the decision from the officials. 

The substances found in CJ Ujah’s bloodstream were ostarine and S-23, which mimic testosterone. According to the athlete, the supplements were consumed by accident through a contaminated supplement. 

CJ Ujah issues formal statement 

Ujah said: ‘I would like to make it clear that I unknowingly consumed a contaminated supplement and this was the reason why an anti-doping rule violation occurred. I sincerely regret that this has inadvertently led to the forfeiture of the men’s 4 x 100m relay team’s Olympic silver medals.

‘I would like to apologise to my team-mates, their families and support teams for the impact which this has had on them. I’m sorry that this situation has cost my teammates the medals they worked so hard and so long for. That is something I will regret for the rest of my life.

‘I would also like to apologise to both British Athletics and Team GB. British Athletics has supported the relay athletes for years and this has been difficult for everyone involved in the programme.’ 

The ban placed on the runner is expected to last for around four years. The decision is her to be confirmed officially, and marks a very dark chapter for the athletes, despite having won 64 medals, excluding the one for relay.
