The Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) provisionally suspended women's 400m champion Salwa Eid Naser of Bahrein for missing 3 drug tests in one year.

Naser, who clocked the 3rd fastest time in the history of 48.14 seconds in Doha to win a surprise gold medal, defeating the Olympic champion, Shaunae Miller-Uibo, is now facing a two-year ban from sports.

“I only missed three drug tests, which is normal. It happens. It can happen to anybody. I don’t want people to get confused in all this because I would never cheat.” said the Nigerian-born Bahraini sprinter.

Salwa Eid Naser's manager Juan Pineda says he's received info from his athlete. 'She missed two tests in 2019. During her holidays in Nigeria early 2020 she missed a flight arriving late to her hotel.' Anti-doping officials missed her at the hotel, 'producing her third missed test.'  

Nasser is the latest athlete represented by Juan Pineda to be suspended for anti-doping rule violation. Pineda also represeneted Abraham Kiptum, a Kenyan long-distance runner and former half marathon World record holder, Robel Fsiha and Sadik Mikhou until they got banned for anti-doping rule violations.
