The Italians were unrivaled in the men’s 4x100m relay in Tokyo. The British took second place, and the Canadians completed the podium. However, there are many indications that the end results will be different. It seems that the British will be stripped of silver, which will put Canada in second place, and the Chinese will take third place.

I was shocked and devastated by this news. To be clear, I am not a fraud, I have never consciously used illegal substances, wrote Chigendu Ugah, a British runner who had illegal substances discovered in his body in his statement.

Tokyo 2020. Brits could lose the silver medal

If the shocking reports in sample B were to be confirmed, the silver medals would be lost by the entire UK relay. Chijindu Ujah will be stripped of the medal, along with his teammates, Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake, Richard Kilty and Zharnel Hughes. The rules are absolute for the entire relay team.

Interestingly, Ujah is the fourth athlete to appear at the Tokyo Olympics to be found illegally. However, the British runner is likely to face the most serious consequences if the B sample confirms the earlier finding. We should know soon if the decision on the medal will be changed.

Ostarine, sometimes used as a treatment for muscle wasting, was discovered in the Ujah sample. However, in practice, it gives athletes the same benefits as anabolic steroids, despite not including the anabolic steroids themselves. In addition to ostarine, the athlete’s body also contained the complex S-23 of the group of peptides.
