Heba Press _ Agencies

On Friday, the Integrity Unit of the International Association of Athletics Federations announced the suspension of Nigerian athlete, Divine Ododoro, for six years for committing two violations of anti-doping rules, saying that it had “conclusive evidence” against him.

The two violations include possession of prohibited sports substances, and attempting to use a prohibited substance or method.

The Integrity Unit also ordered the runner to pay $3,000 to the Athletics Federation, to cover fees and expenses of the case.

“We are very pleased with the outcome of this case because of its particularly horrific nature, as it exposes malicious collusion between athletes and other individuals in carrying out deliberate plans to corrupt athletics at the highest levels,” Integrity Unit head Brett Clothier said in a statement.
