- CJ Ujah tested positive for two banned substances in Tokyo
- Case only third time a Team GB athlete has lost a medal
Britain’s men’s 4x100m relay team has been stripped of its 2020 Olympic silver medal after CJ Ujah’s failed doping test at the Tokyo Games was confirmed. The news marks the biggest doping scandal in British Olympic history, and only the third time a Team GB athlete has lost a medal at summer or winter Games.
In 1988 Kerrith Brown lost his bronze medal in judo at the Seoul Games after testing positive for a banned substance. The skier Alain Baxter lost his alpine slalom bronze medal in 2002 after using a Vicks inhaler purchased in the US. It later transpired that the same inhaler bought in the UK did not contain the illegal substance.
