World 400m champion Salwa Eid Naser has been cleared of doping charges. The Bahrain sprinter was provisionally suspended for missing three drug tests in a 12-month span.

Naser’s case was dismissed by a World Athletics tribunal, who found that the tester knocked on a storage unit door rather than her apartment in confusion of her location.

“This was a case very much on the borderline,” according to the report.

Naser, who won the Doha 2019 world title in 48.14 seconds, was also rewarded with the third-fastest time in history and the fastest in 34 years.

Since the news of her missed tests, Naser maintained her innocence. “I’ve never been a cheat. I will never be,” Naser said in June.
