Nigerian Paralympic champion, Oyema, receives 4-year doping ban, loses medal .

Nigerian Para powerlifter and Paralympic gold medalist, Esther Oyema, has been banned for four years after she committed an anti-doping rule violation, the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) has announced.

A prohibited substance named 19-norandrosterone, was found in a urine sample she provided on January 28, 2019, after the Lagos 2019 International Para Powerlifting Competition in Nigeria.

Oyema, who won the gold at London 2012 in the women’s 48kg, will now be ineligible for competition for four years from May 3, 2019 to May 2, 2023, thus missing the opportunity of Tokyo 2020.

She has also been stripped of the gold medal which she won in the women’s 55kg competition in Lagos, together with any points and prizes.
