British sprinter CJ Uhaj has been banned for a time period of 22 months after testing positive of drug test at the Tokyo Olympics. The 28-year-old was part of the silver medal 4x100m relay side at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Notably, with this result Ujah along with his team has been stripped of their medals. He was tested positive of two banned substances and his ban back-dates to the date of his failed test. Seeing this, Ujah will be allowed to compete from June 2023 as his ban ends on June 5, seeing the failed test date to be August 6, 2021.

With Ujah testing positive of Ostarine and S-23, his teammates Zharnel Hughes, Richard Kilty and Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake also lost their medals after the ruling from Court of Arbitration for Sports. Canada was upgraded to silver while China took the bronze.

Also, the two-year ban was reduced to 22 months after the 28-year-old accepted his violations. The AIU and World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) ruled the violation as “not intentional” as his ingestion was of contaminated supplement.

"In this case, after a thorough examination of the facts, we were satisfied that Mr Ujah did indeed ingest a contaminated supplement, but he was unable to demonstrate that he was entitled to any reduction in the applicable period of ineligibility based on his level of fault," AIU's head, Brett Clothier, said.
