Subsequently, Ms Abugan wrote to the CGF waiving her rights to have her "B" sample analysed and a hearing, as provided for within the CGF Anti-Doping Standard (ADS). She also admitted liability.Â The Federation Court has determined that Ms Abugan had committed an anti-doping rule violation. Consequently, she has been disqualified from all events she participated in during the Games, with the results nullified.
This includes her silver medal in the women's 400 metres. As she was also a member of her country's second placed 4 x 400 metre relay team, that result is also nullified.Â The silver medal for the woman's 400 metres will now be awarded to Aliann Tabitha Pompey of Guyana, with the bronze medal going to Christine Amertil of the Bahamas.Â As a consequence of her disqualification, the women's 4 x 400 metre relay, silver medal will now be awarded to England and the bronze medal to Canada.
The England relay team consisted of Kelly Massey, Victoria Barr, Meghan Beesley and Nadine Okyere.Â The members of the Canadian relay team were Amonn Nelson, Adrienne Power, Vicki Tolton and Carline Muir.
In accordance with the CGF Anti-Doping Standards the documents pertaining to Ms Abugan have now been referred to the IAAF and WADA for whatever additional action they consider appropriate.
