Six months before the Olympic Games in Tokyo, Olympic hurdles champion Brianna McNeal has been temporarily suspended. The 29-year-old American, who took gold in the 100 meters hurdles at the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro, is said to have tampered with a doping test. The global anti-doping agency WADA considers this a violation of doping rules.
The AIU, the integrity unit within athletics, has therefore imposed a temporary suspension on McNeal. The American is a competitor of Nadine Visser, who holds the Dutch record in the 100 meter hurdles with 12.62. Visser finished sixth at the World Cup in Doha in 2019. McNeal was disqualified there in the series due to a false start. Her compatriot Nia Ali took the world title in Doha.
