The panel, consisting of William Norris QC, Conny Jörneklint and Francisco Larios determined that an anti-doping rule violation (ADRV) was established pursuant to Article 2.4 of the IAAF Rules, and as a result, a two-year period of ineligibility is imposed, commencing 19th April 2019. The ADRV also leads to the disqualification of Ms Ahye’s results from 19th April 2019 to 30th August 2019.
