Bahrain’s world 400m champion Salwa Eid Naser has been provisionally suspended for whereabouts failures.
Naser, who shocked the world at the Doha 2019 World Championships by winning the 400m gold, missed three tests in a 12-month period.
Athletics Integrity Unit disclosed on Friday (5 June), saying: “The AIU has provisionally suspended Salwa Eid Naser of Bahrain for whereabouts failures, a violation of the @WorldAthletics Anti-Doping.”
Under the doping rules, athletes must provide regular updates on their whereabouts to facilitate testing outside of competition.
Naser, who was born in Nigeria and moved to Bahrain at the age of 14, beat Bahamian favourite Shaunae Miller-Uibo for the title in Doha.
Naser’s victory ended a 25-month winning streak for Olympic champion Miller-Uibo, who took silver in a personal best 48.37.
