In a significant twist of fate, the world steeplechase champion, Norah Jeruto, whose provisional suspension in April led to her missing the entire 2023 outdoor track season, received a favorable announcement today. The Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) has revealed that the World Athletics Disciplinary Tribunal has overturned her suspension, paving the way for her return to competitive athletics. Jeruto, a 28-year-old athlete originally hailing from Kenya but representing Kazakhstan since 2022, had faced suspension due to irregularities detected in her Athlete Biological Passport (ABP). Initially, the AIU had asserted that Jeruto's ABP profile presented "compelling evidence of anti-doping rule violations." It's worth noting that Jeruto had never tested positive for any doping substances, and she steadfastly maintained her innocence, attributing her unusual blood values to illness and ulcer-related issues.
