The British athlete Chijindu Ujah, silver in the 4×100 relay of the recent Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games , has been suspended with the start of a disciplinary procedure, after detecting a prohibited substance in an anti-doping test.

The Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) announced the case in a statement Thursday that also points to 1,500-year-old Bahrain athlete Sadik Mikhou , Georgia pitcher Benik Abramyany and Kenyan sprinter Mark Otieno Odhiambo as other positives.

In the case of CJ Ujah, the first relevant one of alleged doping in Tokyo 2020 as a medalist, the AIU points out that it detected the presence of the prohibited substances Ostarine and S-23 . If his positive is confirmed, the British team would lose the silver.

Now, Ujah can request an analysis of the B sample, collected at the same time as the one submitted to the test, and if the positive is confirmed, the case would have to go to the Anti-Doping Division of the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

If the process continues and reaches an unfavorable resolution for the British athlete, Great Britain would be stripped of the silver, which would go to Canada (current bronze) and the bronze, for China, in a test in which the gold was taken by the Italian team.
