The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) have announced that Egyptian javelin thrower Ihab Abdelrahman’s four year ban has been lifted, meaning that he can participate in the 2020 Olympics qualifiers.

Abdelrahman who was expected to earn a medal in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janiero missed the summer games after he was temporarily suspended by the International Olympic Committee for doping.

He then undertook a second test that was also positive which led the WADA to enforce a two-year ban on the 30-year-old, which was then doubled to four years.

However the Egyptian Olympic Committee appealed against the decision, which was granted meaning that Abdelrahman can participate in the upcoming 2020 Olympics qualifiers, they announced in an official statement.

The statement also revealed that the ban will be lifted in January 2020 and announced that a meeting will be held on Saturday December 21st between the athlete, the president of the Egyptian Olympic Committee Hesham Hattab, the president of Egypt’s Athletics Federation, a representative of the Ministry of Youth and Sport as well as a representative of the Egyptian anti-doping agency.

The purpose of the meeting will be to discuss future plans about Abdelrahman’s preparations for the upcoming period, in order to secure a spot in the 2020 Olympics.

Abdelrahman’s latest medal came in 2015 when he won the gold medal at the African games and was runner up in the World Championships in Beijing earlier that same year.
