South Africa’s two suspended athletes, sprinter Carina Horn and walker Lebogang Shange, are awaiting hearings for their cases, the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU).
Both of them tested positive for banned substances in 2019, but because they’re contesting their adverse analytical findings, they are serving provisional suspensions.
Shange was temporarily released from his suspension for a week in late June so he could secure qualification for Tokyo. He competed in two events, one in SA and one in Europe.
Horn, Shange and long-jumper Luvo Manyonga, who last month was banned for four years, are on World Athletics’ list of athletes who have qualified for the Games.
The AIU said in a written response to questions that the matters involving Horn and Shange had yet to be finalized.
