The gold medal won by the team made up of Tobi Amusan, Rosemary Chukwuma, Favour Ofili, and Grace Nwokocha is at stake following a drug test speculation.

Nigeria is reported to be on the brink of losing the women’s 4x100m relay gold won at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.

This speculation came following a yet-to-be-named member of the team that failed a drug test; a practice frowned upon in sports.
