Despite his omission from the Nigeria final list, the World Athletics has released the list of athletes for the entry and Nigeria’s track star Tobiloba Amusan made the list.
Amusan was omitted from the Nigeria list following her suspension by the Athletic Integrity Unit ( AIU) after she failed to attend a doping test.
Amusan stunned the World last year after she clinched the Women’s 100m hurdles final and also Olympic Gold.
Amusan will remain in contention to compete pending her appeal, if she wins, then she stands a chance to defend her title.
Of the 44 individual winners from the 2022 edition in Oregon, 38 are entered to defend their titles in Budapest.
World Athletics confirms that more than 2100 athletes from 202 teams intend to compete at Hungary’s new National Athletics Centre between 19-27 August.
